Wandering around Ravelry today, I found this beautiful lace Dragon Shawl. You can buy the pattern here at Etsy, even though at $12.00, I am putting this on my wishlist, officially...since there's like 3 months to my birthday and Christmas.

It would look awesome in an olive green or even better a gold yarn.

Ravelry Here I Come!

I got my invite to Ravelry yesterday. My username is BirdysKnits--so come and say hi!

I love Ravelry, but is keeping me otherwise occupied when I am supposed to get this website off the ground. (Yes, as of this writing it's not even being published--so I am writing to a future you...HELLO!!) But being part of Ravelry does make me want to finish up the site, so I can actually tell people where to get a hold of my patterns.

The wait...

Since yesterday I have had 7 people ahead of me in line for the invite to Ravelry!! SEVEN. So close, yet so very very vary away. I am hoping that today is not their rest day for invites...

Almost IN!

There are merely 83 people ahead of me in the Ravelry queue. All the hype in the knitting blogosphere and on my knitting list is making the waiting torturous.

I finally got around uploading my progress with the Mystery Stole 3--it's been announced the theme is swan lake. The wing portion of the stole hasn't been universally received..but I like it. I think. I am not too concerned since I am still working on the double long clue 4 and the wing doesn't start until clue 5 and people are already finished and blocking there finished stoles. What I need to see for a final determination is how it look being worn. I think it might look weird by itself but simply stunning when worn.

In order: Up to clue 2.

Mystery Stole 3, Clue 2

Detail shot: I love the beads--it's hard to see them with my sucky camera, but they are clear with an opalescence to them.

Clue 3:

More detail shot: I really like this portion of the pattern.

If you missed clue one--see more on my Flickr page. If you want to other Mystery Stole (in a rainbow of colors) once your at the Flickr website do a search for "Mystery Stole 3."

If you missed the KAL all together--Melanie should be releasing the pattern for sale on her website in the coming weeks.

Note, I apologise for the crappiness of the photos--buy more patterns and I can get a new and better camera.

Of Clues and Themes

I am nearly done with clue # 3 of the Mystery Stole. I am surprised how fast I am knitting up this stole--KAL definitely help me keep interest--that and clue releases. MS3 has also eased my post Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows's given me something to look forward to.

Today Melanie released clue #5 (yes I am behind) and the Theme, Swan Lake! (Highlight if you want to know.) I thought it might be that from the edging, swan wings from B. Walker's Second Treasury, but I wasn't sure. It came up so often I thought it was too obvious. I really like clue 5 and I am planning on completing as Melanie wrote it (I know a first for me).
