Mystery Stole 3
Is anyone else participating in the Mystery Stole 3 knit-along? I am and would love to be able to talk about it with other KHers!

For those of you who haven't heard of it before check out the announcement and theYahoo group. The basic premise of the KAL is that you will be knitting a newly designed stole without knowing what it looks like beforehand. The instructions are broken up into chunks and released by the designer once a week starting June 29. I didn't know about the previous two, but a friend told me about this one and since I was looking for a new lace project I thought I would give it a go.

I'm signed up...although still trying to decide on a yarn. I'm either going to go with Zephyr or a 57/43 blend wool/cotton yarn. Haven't swatched yet...to lazy to do both. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

I joined. I will be using Misti Alpaca lace, no color yet, I will go by my friends house to pick the color. (she owns TheSheepsTale) I'm leaning towards a greyish blue. Beads... dunno, guess I'll pick them after I pick a color.

I joined, too. I'm totally undecided about what yarn to use. I have black yarn in my stash and I ordered some white yarn from littleknits. I also ordered some beads in both black and white. As soon as I finish the socks that are currently on the needles, I'll make some swatches and figure out what I like best. This should be fun. I love the patterns from the mystery stoles 1 and 2 (although I didn't join those).

I have joined but haven't picked anything. I don't want it to be too pricey as this is a lot of firsts for me. Hopefully I wil have my yarn by monday or at least have ordered it.

Ok so I am looking for inexpensive yarn but I am not sure what to get. I do want natural fibers but beyond that I am stuck. What do you guys suggest?

Ok I think I am going with the Zephyr vanilla. I am hoping it turns out well enough to give to my mil and I think she will like that color.
