Someone Throw Me a Lifeline

Chart A is done on my Mystery Stole 3. 4000 people signed up! It will be fun to see all the different colors (and abilities - mine is in the few too many/not quite enough YOs category). Beading is a challenge for me because I am a lefty, and holding the crochet hook in my right hand makes me feel awkward. My friends at Knit Night last night helped, and told me my hook is too small (a 13/14), and I could do better with a 12.
Yarn: Jojoland Harmony, C07 Dyelot 101 - subtle changes from pale violet to pale turquoise
Needles: Addi Turbo Lace #3
Beads: Trans Lustered Light Gray AB - size 8 from Beads & Stitches.
BTW, if you're on Ravelry, come over and visit! I'm finally getting my projects loaded in, after being a member for a few months. It is a tremendous time saver, if you can get over the ramp up time of loading in your projects.

You are an evil wicked woman. I went over to the mystery stole site and despite not having any time or the right yarn, I signed up for my first knit along. I was going to leave out the beads, but after doing 20 rows decided to frog it and add the beads. What the heck, I'm completely using the chart for the first time, why not bead for the first time too? I can't wait to see your progress!

Donna, I just got home and opened my package and WOW! Thanks so much for all of these wonderful goodies. I'll post with pix sometime this week. You've been such a great SP. The yarns, needles and notes you've sent have been so inspiring to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'll be back to visit and I can't wait until you have your Ravelry page up. Thanks again!
