MysteryStole3

MS3 is finally done. And washed. And blocked. And put on my diningroomtable. The wing, beautiful as it is, is very different from the rest of the stole,and doesn't quite match the beginning, but that's my opinion. It was fun knitting it, and I'd like to knit another one to use as a tablerunner, but then I would knit two parts from the beginning and graft them together at the middle.
The little "cat's paw" pattern is so cute, it looks like little flowerbuds. It would have been a great pattern on a babysweater...
Speaking of cat's paws...Here is Tiger, 12 days old.
And here she is together with Molly. Molly is a grey male, Tiger is a striped female....she has a very cute tail...
Enjoy your day!

Edited to add: The yarn used for the MysteryStole, is Maxi crochetthread, the one you would use a 1.25mm crochethook for. Pattern made by Melanie. The runner was knitted on 2,5mm needles, it is 30cm wide and 150 cm long (12x60 inches). I started it July 7th, and finished it in September. Each clue (7 in all) would only take a few hours, but I kept arguing with myself how to finish it, which is why it took so long into Sept. to do it.)

MS3 is done! It looks great (and I think I have to agree . . . the wing part somehow stutters the eye) Maybe when it's wrapped around the body, that part will look just lovely.

Give the kitties a squeeze!

Er nok litt enig med deg ja, den ser litt rar ut., men eg såg eit bilde av den i bruk(som stola) og då var den faktisk fin(ikkje heilt min stil, då men)

Kattungane er berre heilt herlige! :D

Håååå.... Nydelige puser!
Jepp, jeg skal virkelig dekke over skinnfelltrykkene mine. Synes det er litt gøy å vite at de er gjemt under der et sted, jeg da. Mottakeren skal få med et bilde av fellen uten åkle.
De sauene dine er kjempeflotte. Hva bruker du skinnene til? Må jo bli flotte skinn av både villsau og hvit spel.
Må snoke mer rundt her og studere både sauene og pinnsvinene litt nøyere tror jeg ;-)

The MS3 is amazing...and it would, indeed, make a stunning table runner too--LOL! The kittens are adorable...The finished tea cozy and your poncho from last post are wonderful too--great work! Happy Day :o)

The mystery stole looks like quite alot of work. How long did you work on it? Where did you find the pattern?

Janice said...

The stole/table runner looks beautiful. I love all the stitch patterns in it! And the kitties are soooo cute!

God ide å bruke mønsteret til å lage løper av! Det var ein tanke eg støttar deg i!
For nokre søte små nøster du har då.

Your MS3 is done and I plan to start mine today. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours.
Loved the poncho.

when the picture popped up, I caught my breath... really beautiful. I just started the wing on mine and I am anxious to finish... I do agree tho, that it is an odd transition. Unique and intriguing is probably the best way to look at it :)
congratulations on the finished piece!

The kitten are beautiful. I love your MS3. I like it alot. I think I want to make one. Is it too late to sign up to get the pattern. I'm going to have to go and check that out.

MS3 is so beautiful. I love lace, but I get so sad when I make a mistake. It seems so difficult to get things right again with all of thos yarn overs, etc.

Kitty is darling too.

Rebecca said...

Your stole is so lovely. Mine feels like it will never end! But I know it will eventually.

The kittens are so cute, I would like to find a kitten like that for my old cat to teach how to hunt mice.

For et fantastisk stykke arbeid ! Når du bruker det som sjal synes kanskje bare en ende om gangen !
Hvis du slenger den andre over skulderen da... Flott ble det uansett ! Katter er herlige, har selv hatt en som ble 17 år, nå må jeg nøye meg med sønn og samboers katt, som jeg koser meg med i arbeidstiden, jeg jobber i 1.etg.,
de bor i 2. etg.
