Mystery Stole 3

Here it is! I am so pleased with the results; really, my first serious lace knitting. Sure I've incorporated lace into sweater patterns in the past, but this is the real thing.

The theme is Swan Lake; one end of the stole representing the long neck and beak (top right); the center section (right) and the other end being a wing (bottom right). While the two major characters in Swan Lake would best be represented in white or black, I chose these beautiful colors of Helen's Lace by Lorna's Laces. Some have suggested they are peacock colors. Hmm, that fits into the theme.

Anyway, we have been working diligently to get the new newsletter and class schedule out, class samples ready for photos and placement on the project board, summer yarns rearranged so we have show you the yummy new fall selections and on and on. I can't say it is all done yet but I had a tiny break between sending out emails so I wanted to get this updated for you all to see.

If you are the "least" little bit interested in lace knitting, I have to tell you it is addicting. And knitting along with others on this project was just so much fun. To get you ready for MS4 next year, we are offering two lace classes. One is a one skin scarf if you are the type that just wants to tiptoe into the topic of lace. The other is a triangular shawl that Ellen M. designed. Although it looks complex she has designed it quite simply; it should be done and ready to wear this fall. So, I am off to the land of email and resuming the sending of newsletters, etc....
