This has been a weekend of finishing for me! I have turned three WIPs into lovely knitted happiness! All photos are clickable for full-size views.

The Mystery Stole 3, aka Swan Lake Stole, has been completed, blocked, and worn. This was my first lace knitting project, and I’m thrilled to have been a part of such a wonderful group of ladies, and to get to test drive a beautiful pattern. Thanks to Melanie for this experience — I’m looking forward to joining again!

Here is the completed work of wearable art:

Also, this weekend, I finished “matching” sweater vests for the kids. They are made from the same pattern, and use the same white yarn and teal yarn.

N’s also uses a navy blue yarn for a more “manly” solid stripe.

C’s has a more fun little-girl stripey pattern that was fun to do, but, oh my, the ends to weave in!



  1. Your stole is gorgeous. I love the color – CONGRATULATIONS!! Doesn’t it feel so good to have it completed??! I just finished mine too. Your vests are really nice.

  3. Nice colour you have in your stole.

    Really this was your first lace knitted piece? You sure didn’t start with easy one ๐Ÿ™‚
