Mystery Stole 3 Swatch

Well, I am finally getting around to making a swatch for the Mystery Stole 3 KAL (knit along). I have been too busy and exhausted to knit anything. and I also wanted to wait closer to the date for the first clue so that I would not be going crazy waiting to start! LOL I am using Zephyr laceweight in Violet, which is a nice lavender color. I forgot to photograph the beads but that will come soon enough. They are clear but have a hint of pearlescent coloring. I think they will go well with the lavender. I am a loose knitter so I am using size 3 Addi lace needles. Melanie, the designer said she used 4 and generally I need to go down a size from most people. Since this swatch is mainly to see what type of fabric we get with our yarn and needles and is not derived from the pattern itself, I did not bother to block this as blocking will not give me any accurate information as to what size stole I will come up with. If you are interested in knowing more about the KAL, you can go to Pink Lemon Twist, which is the designer, Melanie's blog. There is also a Yahoo group and signups are closing today or tomorrow...soon at any rate!
