Mystery Stole 3

I am sure most of you (well, you knitters anyway) have heard of the Mystery Stole 3 project. I joined up way back when it was under 1000 and patiently waited for my yarn to arrive and the first clue to be posted. And it happened. The yarn arrived (Zephyr in Blueberry), I picked out my beads, and printed out the first clue. But that was the same weekend my friend Cristy was visiting from Mackamento (Sactown or Sacramento to those of you who aren't in the WC gang) so I wasn't able to get it started until late Saturday afternoon. I still haven't finished the first clue but I know I will be able to finish the new HP book within 24 hours. So, since a clue won't be posted that Friday, I will have plenty of time to catch up. So far, I have enjoyed working on it. It's been a different experience than knitting the Fan and Feather shawl because that was a repeated pattern. This one is not repeated. So, I actually have to pay attention to the chart. Well, only if I want it to resemble what it's supposed to! And for those of you who are unfamiliar, the white line is a lifeline. If I make some major mistake that can't be easily fixed, I can drop down to that line, pick up the stitches and keep on keepin' on.

Ooooh, pretty! I love beads and lace yarn.

Can you put a lifeline in there every, say, five rows or so?

Oh how I do love that color! I am thinking I really, really want some, yours is so pretty! What size needles are you using again?
