MS3, stage 3


There's quite a lot of knitting going on here, but most of it of the 'move along, nothing to see' variety. Apart from Mystery Stole 3. Here's Clue 3 roughly blocked. The "shadow of the Cross" effect is slightly creepy, but the light was really bizarre and that's the window-frame in the way... At long last there was enough light to take pictures of the beads, which are subtle but lovely.

The resident inspector seems to approve, anyway.

I made a present for a friend a couple of weeks ago, which has now been handed over, so here's Sue's Pot, drying upside down over the glass jar I use for holding balls of yarn so they don't fly around the floor while I'm knitting. It was made of felted Paterna tapestry wool, a present from Jan a couple of years ago - the colours are gorgeous and it so nearly didn't leave the house...

And this is Sunday night's production - a friend came round with a couple of kilos of jostaberries, and I had a bag of birds' eye chilis left from my Chinese supermarket trip the weekend before, so jelly was made...

I've been watching MS3 on various blogs and it's fascinating watching it grow!

Can I have the one at the top please ? ;-)

I'm not sure which is the most beautiful: the shawl, the knitted pot or the jelly!

Your mystery stole is shaping up beautifully and the beads look great.
