I only say that because I can't think of one.

I'm looking forward to the Summer Stash Swap, there is still time to join if anyone else is interested. Imagine trading stuff you don't want and getting something new and fun!

I am also anxiously awaiting the first clue of the Mystery Stole Along. We haven't been given very much info yet, and there have been a lot of guesses to the theme. Seeing as the colors she gave us were white and black, and how she insinuated it might not be appropriate as a wedding stole, my guess was that it was based on Othello. Othello was black, Desdemona was white, and they, along with many others, died at the end. So we'll see soon. Less than a week from now anyway.

Here's my yarn for it and beads. I got 1260 yards of zephyr wool-silk in white, but it's more of an off-white. Just a little. So I took it in to the local bead shop to match beads to it and found some almost the exact color of the yarn and they sorta look like pearls.I started another top from Fitted Knits. The turtleneck. From the red pima tencel I was using for the drop stitch tank. It's going really fast and I love it! Here is a pic of where I was earlier. I'm quite a bit past that and I should be done in a day or two. I have about 7.5 inches of ribbing left on the bottom. That's about it.
Oh yeah! Guess what I got! My spindolyn came and I loooove it. It's so easy to use, it's almost impossible not to get lace-weight. I'm very excited about it, but I still like my spindle too. Here it is in action!
I also got some roving that I ordered a while ago. She was out of town when I got it, but I told her I would wait and I got it the other day. It's merino and silk, and sooo pretty!So that's about it for now. :D Hopefully my next post will have a FO in it!

I still maintain that top looks creepy!

Other than that everything looks fantastic and I have internet at home-- yaay!

Othello was a wonderful story. One of the best next to Titus in my opinion. Shakespeare knew how to write romance but he owned stories that involved betrayel and tragedy!

That roving is gorgeous. I confess I haven't picked my drop spindle up since Thursday night. I think it makes me nervous. -=giggle=- I also don't understand how you can evenly make the roving one consistency.

Everything looks terrific Hattie! We need to do the aim chat again, we haven't actually conversated in quite a while.

Those beads are going to look gorgeous with that yarn. We only have a few days before we get the first clue! Okay, so it's about a week, but if I say a few days it makes it easier to bear. ;-)

I can't wait to see your stole. I will be living through you on this one. :)
