I have not lost my desire to knit Henley Perfected but I've been waiting to find the right yarn. I think my new ColourMart DK silk 32/120NM is the answer.
Last night I finished the back.
The yarn is slightly splitty but it only really bothered me when I did the 2 divisional pattern rows where you have to knit 2 together through the back loops of a yarn over and a slipped stitch. In fact, it was a real pain. But the rest has gone smoothly. I even think I might be able to finish it in time for our big party later this month (more of that later).
And here is the evidence - I have completed my second mystery slipper from the Holiday Mystery Gifts.
A quick and fun knit. I can see myself making more of these in the future.
Sometime tonight my time the final SOTSIII hint will appear. I'm hoping for a clear run tomorrow to get some knitting done. I'm really looking forward to blocking this stole. I think a good hard blocking is going to bring the detail of the pattern to the fore. But as for a guess at the theme? Well, I'm still stuck on snowflakes and flowers. Perhaps blocking will enlighten me.
