Alexis's gift couldn't have come at a better time, too, since I've become SOOO into lace knitting. I'm enjoying the Mystery Stole 3 KAL a lot more than I thought I would. Since I'm going to be out of town for the rest of the week and didn't really want to travel with a cone of laceweight yarn at my side, I worked overtime on MS3 over the weekend and got through the second clue. Here's how it looks:
I was so worried when I joined the KAL that I wouldn't be able to hack the lace knitting. And I don't necessarily expect to stay this on top of the clues as the KAL progresses. But I find that I really enjoy the challenge of lace. And I love how it is turning out. So I definitely see more lace in my future. And now, I have an excellent source for patterns and ideas!
