To someone not knitting this Mystery Stole, these photos must be pretty dull. To the knitter, they signal monumental achievement. "I made it this far! Hooray! I didn't go insane or get knitocidal! See my beads?" This is my second official "Piece of Lace Knitting" and it doesn't seem all that difficult. I know I have just tempted fate in the most awful way (if you are knitting superstitious), but I am in the process of installing a lifeline in case of emergency.
The second clue chart looks laid out in a very logical manner, and you know I like the logical pattern. Wish me luck.
