I worked on it also last night and decided to finish the last 6 rows this morning and what do you know...... I'm done!!!! I love this pattern so far and am exited to see what the next clue with look like.

knitting as fast as I can

I've been knitting as fast as I can because I was a crazy gal and joined two mystery stole KAL's. What the heck was I thinking!!!!!! Oh well. So I thought I would share some pictures of there progress.

The fist picture is of the secret of the stole clue one. I am using Chocolate brown cashmere and the beads are a tortoise color with teal blue centers. I really like the way this one is turning out. And It is knitting up very quickly.

Clue one finished

Secret of Chrysopolis
Now this poor stole is going to take me an eternity to complete. I call the chart a bleeding eye chart because after you look at it for a while you think your eye's are going to start to bleed. I love the way it is turning out and it will be beautiful when it is finished. It's just going to take me a while to acturally get it done. this picture is of the first 16 rows of clue one and we are into week 2 and will be getting week 3 clue this friday. So I better get my but in gear and knit faster.
