Hold the press!

I can't do it. I just can't. I got the last clue for the Mystery Stole 3 and I just can't finish it. I was going to finish it and give it to my mother, but I don't want her wearing it. I really think that it is unattractive. I thought that I would like something that was asymetrical, but I don't. The join is clunky and looks like it could have been a mistake but it isn't. I am sad to say that I really do not like the look of this one. I still think that Melanie is a VERY talented pattern maker but this is just one of those things that comes down to personal taste. Oh well.

Not much else happening here at Casa Yarn. Lots of stress and saddness. My best friend Jean passed away on Monday after a long illness and still no word of where Rich's and my butt will end up workwise. Meantime I just keep knitting on crochet cotton making this tablecloth (Rose of England). It is almost like I am going crazy little by little and this is my occupational therapy. If I could make you believe how many times I have ripped out this thing you would know that it is a project of futility.

Meantime.....I knit on.

Really bad picture but oh well

Clue 5 of Mystery Stole 3

Here is the Mystery Stole 3 Clue 5. I have about 6 more rows to go before I am done with this clue. I am sorry that it is such a horrible picture but I just don't have the energy to really do it justice. You get the general gist of it I am sure. I will post another picture when I am completely done with this clue. This "stole" will be going to my mother. I am not thrilled with it so far.
