Mystery Stole 3

Yes, I am another one who has fallen down this rabbit hole. And what's more, I've taken my mom with me. She's in town this week for tonight's Stitch & Pitch game. We had a nice chance to sit and compare our work on this project so far.

First there was this.

Which quickly turned into this.

Right after that dried and I was happy with the guage, this happened.

It didn't take long to finish the first clue. I'm loving the beads and the look of this as it grows. It's fun to see how the chart pictures become real in the knitting. I'm currently working on clue 4 and I have progress pics of clues 2 & 3. If I can manage to get my camera and my computer to play well together, I'll post those soon.

ETA: If there's a way to reply to comments, I don't know what it is. I'm using size US 3 addi lace needles.

Sockapalooza Socks Finished!

I hope my sock pal likes these, I sure do! It's a good thing that my pal's feet are smaller than mine, or I'd be tempted to keep these.

Specs: Monkey socks, no mods. Fleece Artist yarn in the Sangria colorway. US 1/2.5mm addi lace needles (magic loop).

I loved knitting these so much that as soon as they were finished I cast on a pair for myself! Also Fleece Artist but in the Renaissance colorway. This stuff is like crack, must... get... more...
