A Canterbry Tale

Again another great day of cycling and knitting yesterday. Stage 1 was ever so exciting...unfortunately lots of crashes and the exciting win by the Aussie Robbie McEwen in mystical fashion. I think that I hadn't whooped so loud for a sporting event since the Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup! (And did anyone see the ending of another great tradition...Wimbledon?) Cruised along through 92 rows of my MS3...very much in the cadence of the pattern. Two hints that I have picked up along the way....even though there is a written out file that corresponds to the chart I still write out each row by hand. Once I hit row 60, I started to divide the left and right side into groups of 10 stitches in my repeats separated by my hair elastic stitch markers. The beading tutorial by Deb was extremely helpful and now placing the beads is a snap! Hoping to get through rows 93 thru 100 (at least) later today.

Very nice stole - mine has a few "rogue yarnovers" but still looks ok.

Your stole is coming along fabulous! I'm 20 rows into the second clue after 6 rows of pulling back - thank gosh for safety lines!:)
