MS3 Clue 2 Complete

I may have got a late start on the knitalong, but I managed to catch up. Clue 2 is finished and now I have to wait until Friday for the next clue.

I don't normally block shawls while they are still in progress, but with the long wait until the next clue is released I thought I might as well see what I have so far.

This close-up photo shows the rainbow angelina in the handspun a little better than some of the previous ones. The beads are adding their extra sparkle too.

i got my beads, but i think they may be too big for my yarn! i'm going to check it out tonight, and see.

Beautiful!! I love it in the dark color with the Angelina. MMMMMMmmmmm yummy!!

How wide is it blocking? Mine seems a LOT bigger than Melanie's 20", which is good with me.

My beads are actually a little too small Minnie. I have to do some fancy twisting and tugging to get the yarn through. At one point I actually broke one of the plys of my 2ply handspun. Yiikes. I hope it doesn't end up causing a hole later.

As it is right now Kat, it measures 20 1/2 inches across but when I do the final blocking it will likely stretch out a little further. I block lace quite severely.

I'm just about caught up, myself. I'm about halfway through Clue 2. I'm going to do a little blocking myself when I have clue 2 finished. [grin]
