Wherein the Black Beast is Tamed
Gratuitous arty shot:
I'm using US size 7 needles so that the Mystery Stole pattern shows through the halo. The beads are also a bit larger than specified: size 6 instead of 8. And they are plummy purple. I love the way they look - like a glinting purple highlight on the black.
I finally started yesterday after a trip to the bead store (which is next door to the yarn store!). :)
I will save the real gloating until I have actually finished the Mystery Stole. No need to anger the Mohair Gods yet while they still have power over me.
