Works in Progress

I'm continuing work on the following:

1. Mystery Stole 3. I am through Clue 2, and about one-fourth through Clue 3. I have decided to shorten my stole, because it will be a gift for a dear friend who just turned 50. She is shorter than 5 feet, though, so I think shortening it will be the best choice. I hope to be into Clue 4 by next Friday's Clue.

2. Clapotis. I am working on Clapotis as part of the Knitty KAL.
I am making Clapotis from Makalu Yarns Lambgora, (80% Lambswool, 10% Cashmere, 10% Angora). I feel like I might be the last person to cast on Clapotis. It has been an enjoyable project, though, and a rare item that I am knitting for myself. I am aiming to complete it by Christmas time, but would be thrilled if I finished it in time for the fall.

3. Koigu Feather and Fan. My mother-in-law saw a feather-and-fan scarf made from Koigu at a LYS. She fell in love with it, so I am working on one for her. I hope to finish it by her birthday in September.

4. Annie Modesitt Lace Scarf. I took a workshop with Annie Modesitt last fall, and this lovely scarf has stalled on my needles. I am trying to pick it up and complete a few rows each week. I really love the project, so I am not sure what holds me back from finishing! I am making it from Classic Elite Post, a 30% Cashmere, 70% Silk blend. It has been an absolute joy to knit with!

Sadly, there are many other things on the needles, but these are the most pressing, I suppose. I am really trying to keep myself from casting on, even though I did have a productive weekend of finishing!

When you are done with the feather and fan you should make a chevron scarf and join their KAL too. It's almost the same and it's fun. Check it out, link is on my site.

Wow - I'm glad I'm not the only person with an insane amount of things on the needles. The MS3 looks great!
