Clue 2 Done!!!

I finished clue 2 yesterday for the Mystery Stole 3. I did find a mistake way down in the clue 1 area......but i am NOT starting over again.

I was working on a pair of Breeze socks in blue cotton fine yarn, but it was too loose, so I frogged them and started over.....twice....but I think they are going better, although I only have the ribbing done.

Mystery Stole Clue 1 Done!!!!

Mystery Stole Clue #1 done! Actually I finished it yesterday, but didn't get the pictures uploaded until today.

I only started over 3 times to get the right needle size and to learn the importance of lifelines. But now I think I have it going better.

I have learned a few things about lace though:

Count your stitches after every pattern row. If the number doesn't seem right, recount, you probably counted wrong....or at least i did...

Lifelines are important....don't get too brave too quick.

If you can't seem to count the right # for many tries, PUT IT DOWN, otherwise you will really mess it up and you were likely just too tired

Now I am off to start on Clue 2.....wish me luck
