My Secret of knitting

I've been working on Secret of Bad Nauheim for awhile now. The body pattern was released in four parts, which need to be repeated 3 to 3 1/2 times to acheive desired stole length. I'm doing 3 repeats since I'm a shorty.

I'm actually almost finished with the final repeat, but since I have a photo of 2 repeats to show, I'm skippin' the whole dry-blocking scenario until I have the first edging repeat done.

A lovely close-up:Since Moni's designs have turned me into a KAL Stepford wife, I'm gearing up for the Slow Bee Mystery (Slow Bee Mystery 2 still open for sign ups, in case you feel compelled to conform).

Here's my swatch, blocked on unbleached muslin for your hardly-contrasted viewing pleasure:

Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Horizon (color discontinued, so sorry) with size 8/0 seed beads from Fusion Beads in light Azure AB.

Your SOBN is really lovely! I wish I'd kept up with it but I'm too far gone to finish. Congratulations on yours!!!Keep up the beautiful knitting.

Wow, I think you win the prize for most perfect "cool" color choice. All your lace shawls are so beautiful. I'm having the hardest time keeping up with the Slow Bee I; I can't imagine how you find time to do so much and have it come out looking so beautiful.

I am so sorry I missed it!
