Three for Thursday

Well I can tell what kind of week I've had by the fact that I haven't blogged since Saturday.
Saturday? Jeez, where has the week gone? Oh, right busy preparing for MS3 tomorrow but more on that later.

Now for the Three Things Thursday
  1. French Trellis update ~ I really am enjoying the center leaf insertion pattern and not overly anxious to attempt to turn the corner and do my first knitted on border. Maybe I'm doddling? ;-) Repeat 16 will be done easily tonight and I do plan on doing 2 extra repeats to make sure this wider than specs version keeps a similar proportion and I have just enough to do that. Nevermind that I'm cleaverly putting off the turning the corner and knitted border thing. Long story short ~ Won't finish before starting MS3 and no picture since it looks just like Saturday's picture just longer.
  2. Two new items came in for the shop this week.

    HiyaHiya Stainless Steel Circular needles in various sizes perfect for lace and socks on 2 circulars. I'm really liking them and they are a really good thrify alternative to the Addi Lace Turbos.

Then the order of Claudia Hand Painted Silk lace (5 new colors) arrived. From left to right: Crushed Velvet, Freesia, Moss, Blue Fields and Jungle. A really nice mix of bright and muticolored and subtle semi-solids. I've also exteded the sale on the Claudia silks and mohair through the end of July.

3. Preparations for Mystery Stole 3 are complete. All the necessary items are gathered and in place for tomorrow's release of the 1st clue. One final check.

* Yarn - 3 cones of Habu Tsumugi Silk in White ~ Check
* Needles: 1 24" Addi Turbo Lace ~ Check
* Beads: 2 colors from the BeadWrangler ~ Check
* Crochet hook: Size 13 for picking up and applying beads ~ Check
* Stitch markers ~ Check

Ok, now for the first clue.

One last item to share... I got these adorable stitch markers that I ordered from I just couldn't resist.
