The Mystery Continues....

Well, I've FINALLY caught up to all the other participants of MS3...I've started clue #4!

This is a very fun pattern to knit, and trying to figure out the "theme" of this stole is a real brainteaser! It supposed to be knit in either black or white...it's suitable for a bride to wear...or to wear to church. Hmmmm...I have NO clue what the theme is!
Of course, the rebel that I am, I didn't want my stole to "match" all the others so I went with the pale pink.

The knitting continues on my Rockport Vest, I haven't picked up the Monkey socks...except to go to the Avalanche game last week and never knit on them not even one stitch. I need to start the second baby blanket for a friend...I need to start on Mom's Sweater Vest...I need to start on Rogue....I need to start....
I think you get the picture!

We may have to make an abrupt trip to Gettysburg in the next few days...Hubby's Great Uncle is not doing well, and the worst is expected. Keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

I think yours is the most MS3 progress I've seen. Looks good. Sorry about having to go to Gettysburg. But at least it's a nice place to visit.

The stole is looking beautiful. :-)
I like that it's not too wide.

Here's hoping there won't be a need for you to make that quick trip, but if so, my thoughts are with you, and have safe travels.

I'm hoping for the best - your shawl is lovely (not surprising at all!)

I'm loving the pale pink.
Family and friends...they're in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all goes well with peace in his heart.
(I don't mean that to sound coldhearted at all...)

Yours looks lovely, good work!
Actually, Melanie said that although it's suitable to wear to church, the theme isn't one that a bride would want to wear to a wedding.
Keep in mind, that even though her last two MS knitalongs had classical themes, the knitted patterns themselves did not contain any recognizable pictorial elements. No people or birds or objects, except in the abstract sense. So, despite whatever the theme is called, I doubt if the finished stole is going to contain any recognizable object that would upset a bride.
At the beginning of the KAL, however, she did say that based on the theme, it might not be something a bride would want to wear.
(Melanie responded directly to someone who was hoping the KAL would be finished in time for her August wedding).

Wow, I think you are an incredibly fast knitter. :o) I want to knit Rogue too - have pattern, just too many other distractions along the way.

Your stole is very pretty Robin. I send my best wishes and thoughts to your Great Uncle.
