Hi everyone -
I'm happy that I am joining this KAL. I am currently working on MS3, and I'm only one clue behind, so I think I am doing very well! LOL I signed up for the first two mystery stoles also, but I didn't finish either one. This one, I am bound and determined to finish because I already have plans for wearing it to the Embroidery Guild national seminar banquet. :o)
I live in Jackson Mississippi. I am a new lace knitter, and I definitely have been bitten by the lace bug. I already have my Hanami pattern, and now I will be looking for pretty pink lace yarn so I will be ready to go in September. And I have found several other luscious shawl patterns that I just must knit also. :o)
I also spent some time in Japan when I was a child. My father was in the air force, and he was stationed there from when I was three to about six years old. I am currently studying Japanese embroidery at the Japanese Embroidery Center in Atlanta, and really enjoying that. If you would like to see some gorgeous embroidery, check out their web site: http://www.japaneseembroidery.com/index.html. If this stole turns out good enough, I am thinking about giving it to my teacher, Masa Tamura.
I'm off to start Clue 3 of the Mystery Stole. I am looking forward to knitting this stole with you all.
