W.I.P. Friday: Mystery Swatch

I'm putting up my W.I.P. a day early because I figured that my Mystery Stole #3 swatch might be helpful to a few people out there. Mystery Stole officially begins tomorrow and I must say, I'm finding it overwhelming. I tend to work in a fairly solitary way and I've never encountered such a busy KAL. I usually don't join the yahoo group things, and I must say, the amount of digest emails I'm getting is starting to drive me a little bonkers. Not that there's anything wrong with everyone's enthusiasm (I think the Mystery Stole ladies are awesome) -- it's just not what I'm used to.

Anyway -- my swatch is posted above. I'm using Misti Alpaca Laceweight (colour: natural white) with a US #3 needle (3.25mm). I'm thinking it's the right amount of lacy-ness and the gauge is good.

I've also started on my Charade socks. They're totally addictive. Pictures and stuff to come once I've knitted a little bit more.

I did the Mystery Shawl 2, and the emails from the Yahoo Group are totally overwhelming. I changed my settings so that the comments would not get emailed to me, and that was much better. Even so, every time I looked at the Yahoo Group page, I'd have to read every single comment, regardless of whether it was actually helpful or not. Some people are so angry and bitter! Sheesh! But there were a lot of helpful comments too :)

Your swatch looks great. Glad to see that Yahoo didn't crash this morning while we all tried to access the site to print the first clue.
