Hint 5 is done and is becoming tricky to photograph in its entirety.
So I took a close-up of the hint. Now I have started seeing insects floating up the stole. Mayflies or perhaps even bees?
I've also finally finished my Poet's Pullover. I knitted this in BWM Alpaca in, I think, Sphere. Hard to know as a bought a pack of the yarn in their fabulous back room and it was unlabeled. I used 3.5 mm, 4 mm and 5 mm circular needles to knit the pullover.
I had to redo the sleeves because they ended up too wide. I think there were a couple of errors in the pattern but nothing serious. I'm pretty happy with the end result.
