Wings and Toes

Well, MS3 is winding down. The final clue is released tomorrow. I'm unsure how I feel about that. It's kind of like how I felt when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released. I don't want the knit-along to be over, but I want to see how the whole thing comes together. Personally I'm hoping for lots and lots of beads. I suspect that lace and beads may be my newest obsession. Ah well, it could be worse. And hey, I've got pictures! So on with it.

Clue 5 completed.

Just the wing portion of clue 5:

And because I also have shots of clue 6 coming up, I thought a page break was in order. Behold the absolute cutest little tootsies:

Also, behold the amount of cat hair on my couch. Blech! Are we ready? No? Okay, something else to keep you going.... hmmm. How about this?

This was just one of the pies that my cousin John baked at the cottage. They were phenomenal!

Okay, enough dawdling. Here it is. My stole is up to date, even if my blog hasn't been. My finished clue 6:

I think it's looking pretty good. The line where the wing meets the body of the stole is a little harsh, but I don't think I mind too much. I love the feathers! But I've been working on Icarus off and on for a while, so that's a given. I just wish I had thought to add beads to it. Ah well, next time.

So I'm ready for clue 7 tomorrow, except I'm going out of town this weekend, and will be spending most of the day tomorrow on the road. No internet! Waaaaah! On the plus side, my parents (whose home I'm crashing) have a colour printer, so I can say goodbye to my pink highlighter. I won't be taking the stole with me, though. It's gotten far too large. It is, in fact as wide as my couch is deep, and who knows how long. I wonder how I'm going to block it. I'll worry about that later.

That's it for now. There has been a minor stash enhancement, but I forgot to take pictures of it. I was too busy admiring little pink toesies. I'll get to that next time.
