MS3 - or How I fell down the rabbit hole!

I finally finished Clue 1 Chart A! Those of us (6671 to be exact) that signed up for Melanie's Mystery Stole 3 KAL were given Clue 4 today - so you can see how far behind I am! (If you missed out on the Yahoo! Groups KAL, Melanie will be making the pattern available on her webiste, for a small fee, after the KAL is complete. Check out her others in the meantime)

I frogged at least 4 times. While I say this is the fifth attempt, it may well be my seventh!! :)

Here is the beginning... a nascent 50 rows:


It's looking very lacy, but pretty good for my FIRST...

... Lace project (besides the occasional yo on a couple of sock
patterns)

... Laceweight yarn useage

... chart following experience (I chose to follow the chart rather than
the written. It's working out pretty well, provided I remember to count
at the end of every row and fix or repair RIGHT AWAY!)

... beading project

Lots of firsts. I'm confident it will turn out just fine.

My yarn/bead choice: KP Alpaca Cloud in Moss with gold seed beads.

I think you are very brave to try this as your first lace project - and you are doing a wonderful job!!!! Don't worry about being behind - just go at your own pace and be proud of how wonderful you are doing. :)

I agree with Karen. Very brave. Keep on truckin'!

I like the green and gold.

I think your stole is beautiful. The colors are lovely.
