It's going to be all about the stoles...

'cause my Gumdrop socks are done. And just in time for the September Rockin' Sock Club shipment since our packages are suppose to mail out Tuesday domestically.

pattern: Gumdrops by JC Briar
yarn: Socks that Rock lightweight in Goody Goody
pattern size: medium
needle size: KP 2.25 mm circs 'cause I was going for a tighter gauge
no mods 'cept playing the gauge game

So all that I have on my needles now are Monkey1's second fingerless gloves, but that's for soccer practice, and my 2 stole KAL's.

I got hint #2 of my Mystery Stole 4 KAL completed yesterday. Looking forward to starting hint #3 'cause there I won't have to deal with beads for awhile on this stole 'til hint #5.

The stole I am aiming to finish on time however, is my Secret of the Stole iii. I finished hint #5 earlier this week, marking the halfway point of this KAL. We have a wedding to attend mid-October so this will be the stole I'll be using. The monkeys' flower girl dresses are primarily dusky pink and cream, but the embroidered flowers have rather sagey green leaves that I can match with my stole.

Now I just need to shop for my own dress for the wedding :P and the monkeys' dress shoes.

Funny, but definitely not snowflakes, but do I maybe see a more oblong shape, kinda like LEAVES? COOL!!! The SSiii is looking good! And (as you know) I love the MS4! The SSiii is going to be so gorgeous for the wedding!

Of course you finished the socks!! Good girl!! Well, maybe I'll get one done before my package gets here (actually, I'll probably be in Oregon when it gets here, so I may have a few extra days!). The socks look fabulous!!

As do the stoles!! Gorgeous!

I wonder where my gumdrops went? Yours look super! I better finish them quick, because I have a hard time knitting pastels and the new STR kit is beckoning.

I'm stupified. How do you DO this??!!It's incredible. My hand-eye coordination is getting so that I'm lucky to be able to thread the toilet paper onto the dispenser. Well, ok, maybe not quite that bad. I liked all those pretty eyeshadow links you had. Mmmmmmm, I need a mall with a good makeup counter.

Looks like you are right on time with your Secret of the Stole III. I am looking forward to seeing it in the wedding photos.
