Don't You Just Love It When a Plan Comes Together?

T. told you a little about our SnB on Monday. We were sitting at one end of the table when we were joined by Sarah Janet. After we discussed our strong feeling about Snape's allegiances and how they will play out in the final Harry Potter book, she asked if we were signed up for the Mystery Stole. Pardon? We had never heard of this splendid idea. So you just pick up some lace weight and every week Pink Lemon Twist will post some more rows to the stole. I was a little skeptical until I saw last year's project. Ok. I'm a push over.

So when I got home from SnB, I had a look at some laceweight yarn I had lying around. Only 600 yards and I will need 1200! Eek! I desperately emailed Urban Yarns in Vancouver to see if they happened to have one more ball in my dyelot. I waited the whole next day in anticipation. They, in fact, had ONE ball left and would send it to me the next day! Hurray! I'm all set! It's the yarn that is recommended and I swatched it and everything! Now I just have to wait until Friday to cast on! (Before you ask, she's giving us a week off when the last Harry Potter book comes out. Isn't that thoughtful?)


















I also finished my Titania's revenge socks. Quite happy with the results. What do you think?










And finally, started on some socks for a nephew. I'm using Interlacements Tiny Toes and I like the color but it seems to come off on my hands as I knit with it. Not great but I'll hurry through these and give them a good wash before giving them away at Christmas.




Everything is coming together. Now if I could just get T. to stop buying yarn....

Yeah, yeah. You're the one who encouraged this whole mystery stole thing. Honestly, I was doing fine until then. At least, that's what I tell myself.

And the sock tally just makes me look incompetent. Really.

Yayyyyy! I'm so glad you guys are doing MS3 too! I already cast on despite not having finished my sweater, because I have no self control.

Hey, did you hear about the Ewe Asked For It sale? Next Saturday. Starts at 8am. (As in July 7th, that is.) You know you wanna...

Ooh, the mystery stole sounds intriguing. Oh, how I wish I had some time to do it too.
