Starting Over

I've changed my mind, and my pattern choice. With the MS3 ripped I've started reusing the handspun "Black Rainbow Glitter" on the Honeybee Stole. After a bit of a rocky start, once, twice, third time is the charm. I'm up to row 28 now.

The red at the top (from this perspective) is just my provisional cast on. The green blips at the bottom are snippets of plastic straw I use for stitch markers. I'm adding beads to the edges of the stole, but they aren't visible in this photo.

Thanks Kaylen, for the use of your flannel "burp cloth". It makes a great lap cloth so that I can see the black stitches a little better. It works great when I'm spinning black too.

I love that pattern, I'm sure no matter what you do it will be beautiful!

Thanks Hattie. I'm finished row 44 now and chugging away every non-distracted moment I can get. It's looking quite nice.

Wow, very pretty. Good luck. I have so much troublr seeing dark yarn.
