Because of delay in getting my yarn and lack of time (it was in the LYS last wednesday, I picked it up on thursday and started saturday). But today I finished hint #1, so on the way to hint #2. Hopefully next week I'm on schedule. Here's a picture of my beginning of the stole:
So, I love the yarn, the softness and the gorgeous color. Yes, I know; fluffy yarn, it was discouraged but I was not ;-). I'm not regretting it, the pattern shows better in non-fluffy yarn but I love it anyway. The yarn is Vivaldi from Drops Yarn, nr 24.
I have to buy a lace needle, but I'm going to do that the 3rd of November at the Stitch'n Bitch day. My needle of 40cm is much too short (I used my 100cm needle to show it), and a sharper point would be nice. I'm knitting it at 3.5mm needles, the larger swatch is with those. The smaller swatch is with 4mm needles, but didn't make a big difference so I decided to use the first one.
I like my first lace project!
