I love how the waves show up so much
I also cast on the second half and have finished one repeat so far this morning. If I can keep this half as perfect as the last, I will be very happy. I can't wait to have this finished, so I can block this baby out.
Other news...We are getting ready to go back to Georgia for the 4th of July week, to visit my husbands parents. We are very excited about this. He hasn't seen his parents since last June, so it should be tons of fun. Plus lots of travel time=lots of knitting time. :)

I am done six of the seventeen repeats for this side of the stole, and am quite pleased with how its turning out so far. The pattern is written so that the center panel is worked in two pieces and then grafted together in the center. Giving you mirrored waves. Then a small border is worked around the entire piece, with a large border framing that. Thank you Eunny Jang, for this beautiful pattern. I am very excited to see how this is going to turn out. And other then some missing stitch problems at the beginning, everything is going pretty smoothly.(Knock on wood)
Other things...I joined a new group today, the Mystery Stole 3.
I have never done a mystery project before so this should be fun. I'm going to go get my yarn tomorrow so that I can work my swatch and get my beads for the project. I'm thinking that I'm going to use Ornaghi Filati Merino Oro in either yellow or seafoam. But we'll see when I get to the LYS, I always seem to change my mind once I get there.

After my two attempts at socks, I think my sock curiosity is finally filled. So I'm going to move on to bigger and better things. Shawls...
I've been reading Eunny Jang's blog, and I absolutely love her patterns. I started working on the "Print O' The Wave Stole" last night. I don't have much done, but I am loving how its looking. I'll post a picture as soon as I pull the camera out.
