This stole is going to look fabulous with a dark background! I tried placing it on something lighter for the pictures, and it was very difficult to see the patterning. Perhaps when it is blocked it would work…
Take a look at the progress, though! I am finished with the first repeat of Clue 1, and I think it is really coming along. I had one little mishap with a dropped stitch last night, but I think it will be OK in the grand scheme. That teaches me to try to watch So You Think You Can Dance while knitting something with a pattern. Clue 2 is released tomorrow (and the knitalong is closed at that point- sign up now if you still want in!). I can’t wait to see how the pattern progresses. We have at least 250 more rows (based on the 50 so far) to go, which promises lots of patterning! This is definately more swirly than last year’s stole (which is also beautiful) and fun!
Next step: pick up the cast on edge and begin Clue 1 again. I am debating whether to go ahead and start that portion or wait until tomorrow morning and keep going with this side. Choices, choices!!
