A Productive Weekend

Today I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I wasn't one of the fanatics who stood in line to buy it at 12:01 am, I waited until the next day, calmly walked in, found the display conveniently placed right next to the entrance to the check out line, checked out and left. The whole thing took less than half an hour, from the time I decided to go. The reading of the book took about a week (no snickers from the peanut gallery - that means pipe down you in the back), but what do you want, this girl actually has to work, and was splitting the non-work time between her husband, the book, and MS3.

Speaking of MS3

I also finished the first part of clue 4 of MS3. This took me a bit longer than it should have because I decided I wanted to add more beads to this clue than were included, and I need to work out where to put them. It's coming along well, don't you think? I do still have the second part of clue 4 to work on, but I should manage it before clue 5 comes out.

That's hopefully a picture of how I'm managing the beads. There really isn't much of a contrast between the beads and the yarn, so not sure how visible they'll be.

My First Post

Ok, so I got sick of dealing with all the hassle of hosting my blog myself, so here I am, gave in and got an account.

Right now I'm working on Mystery Stole 3 (hereto forth to be known as MS3) and a blanket for my soon to be appearing nephew. I hope this time around to actually have it done before he makes his grand entrance.

On MS3, I finished Clue 3 last night. Dry blocked it currently measures 19" wide by 20" long. I am working it on Knit Picks Options size 4 and Zephyr Sage.

Sorry, no picture at the moment of the baby blanket. That's all for now.
