MS3 Clue 1

I have FINALLY completed clue 1 on MS3!!! I cant believe its taken so LONG......

However that is entirely my fault! :( I messed up on row 80 something couldnt figure out WHERE and had NO lifelines :( So I had to rip the entire thing out... Now this yarn isnt easy to rip out!! I am so glad in the end I got three skeins because I just tossed the old one to the side and recasted on this one and started completely fresh! :) I did make a couple of mistakes but was able to go back and fix those...

Its badly pinned down to the bed but I will do a better job at blocking this sucker. :) I cant wait to start clue 2!! I know clue 4 is out and I am really thinking I could catch up over the next two weeks, WE WILL SEE!.... Ive been putting in a lifeline every 10 rows, you only see one here because I took the other one out and set it to the side while taking the pictures. But thats the center of clue 1 its pretty huh?

Just because I can shot really.... This is also more like the colour of the actual stole. I really like it. Even if I did want a black one I think the slate gray and purple make it prettier since I decided not to go with beads. I cant wait to get more of this knit. This yarn is a DREAM to knit with even if its a b***h to rip out....
Off to go knit!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
(btw Amy, yes its the Knitpicks Bare that you sent me, no I havent dyed it YET)

Beautiful work. I really like the color you chose. The subtle play of the pinks and browns. Lovely choice.

Oh wow.. I was too late to join MS3 :S But I'm actually knitting the MS1 stole right now ;) A bit late, but still loving it!

Is that the new Malabrigo laceweight? It is beautiful!!
