Hint 5 of secret of the stole completed

I can't believe it It's Monday and I have hint 5 done. I usually don't even get a chance to work on it until Monday, but a change in my work schedule leaves me home on Friday's now so I can have some time to knit. Take a look

I just did some rough blocking I hope to find some blocking wires. I just haven't had the time. Hopefully before I finish this I will have them. Well I guess I just have to work on my Christmas projects until the next clue comes out on Friday.

secret of the stole progress and a question

Originally uploaded by inlovewithalpaca
I thought that I would post a picture of what I have done at the moment. I am on row 313 of clue 4 and will finish out the clue and probably add some more because at the moment with so so dry blocking it only measures 36 inches in length. I know that if it was wet blocked I would be able to stretch that a little bit more. I'm only 5'4" and am wondering what length is suggested. This is my first stole so I don't have experience to go by. Any suggestions??????

I think I'll just keep knitting the repeat until the next clue comes out!!!!
