Knitting Into the Mystery...

I have begun work on Clue 1 of the Mystery Stole. I am fairly confident that I will finish it before Clue 2 is posted on Friday. The holiday on Wednesday should help. I am quite pleased with how it is coming together so far. I am using beads, but I am wishing I had selected a more contrasting color. I might switch beads once I get to the long rows. My yarn is a wine-colored Zephyr and my beads are the same color, but iridescent. I am including a picture of my progress to date. It is unblocked - clearly - and I am certain riddled with mistakes. However, I am thrilled to be to row 34 - only 65 left to go!

I am happy to report that this does not seem to be as daunting of a task as I had worried it would be. However, my thoughts on that might very well change - drastically - come Friday.

I am looking forward to the week that the Harry Potter book publishes. I don't read the Harry Potter series, so the extra time should be a real boost to me!

I'm off to search other blogs to see how everyone else's mystery knitting is coming along.

I can't see any errors. It's looking great - and I LOVE the colour!
