I've signed up for the Mystery Stole 3. I went back and forth on it, should I, shouldn't I. The Spring Things Shawl is on the needles and only up to the first repeat of the first border. It is a long way from finished. My knitting time is shared with my spinning time and that with my dyeing time. I signed up anyway. The clincher was checking out Melanie's blog, Pink Lemon Twist. She has pictures of her stole patterns, including the last two Mystery Stoles. It took one look at her Hanami Stole to know I wanted to play along. There are over 3000 other player / knitters. That's a lot of knitters making the same thing. But different.
The yarn choice was easy. I went into my umm.. shop and chose a merino & silk lace wt. in the colorway Pokeberry. The instructions call for beads. (If I wasn't hooked by her patterns, the beads would have done it, lol.) I'm thinking a silver lined clear glass E bead. Nothing too flashy. My second thought was a plain silver bead. Since you can't predict the look of the pattern, it is a hard choice to make. Anyone else playing?
