Mystery Stole 3 ~ Clue #1...the lace is on!!!

So.....
I downloaded the first clue (part of the pattern) and knit it up to Row 57. I do have beads on it....honest. You can click on the picture to enlarge it and see. :)
I was doubting the way this was looking and feeling and was going to start over on smaller needles. I stretched it out to see it better. I like it now. I can't get over how 'light' it is. It hardly weighs anything!
I have more rows to go before I complete clue #1.
If you want to see how the beading is done for this, check out Knitty or Debi's blog.
So! If you like what you see so far, it isn't too late to join the madness! The doors to welcome new members closes July 6th!

Very nice. I haven't started mine yet. I just decided on the yarn and I hope to cast on later today after I finish the sock I am working on.

Nice work Maria. I haven't photographed mine yet as I haven't finished clue 1. I am going with the white version but yours is quite lovely in the dark. May have to knit this one twice!
