Here’s my Mystery Stole 3 swatch:
It’s difficult to see the beads. There are two kinds – one that is sort of clear with a rainbow tint and the other is pearl-ish. I’m going with the latter. I think they look nice with the color of the yarn. Now I just need to see how many beads I have before I start and if it’s not enough I need to see if I can get more. I bought these from Beadworks in Boston. I went to a local bead store yesterday and didn’t see anything like them. I’ll need to count them and see how many I have (I need 300) and if I don’t have enough, I’ll have to scout out some more bead stores around here.
Not much other knitting going on. My socks haven’t seen much progress because I’ve been stressed and not wanting to work on them. I’m 1/3 of the way done with the second sock. I’m going to "Boot Camp for Socks" today at Knit-On! today. My sister is coming with me and some of the gals from my knitting group will be there. Should be fun!
