Secret of the Stole Hint Four

I almost fell behind this week, due to working a lot of unexpected hours, but I finished Hint Four: Luckily this week's hint was all bubbles, easy to memorize and no beads to fuss with. I opted to knit the stole at the designed length, without shortening or lengthening it. I am still really enjoying knitting this. Meanwhile, I ordered some blocking wires which should arrive tomorrow, so I'll be able to put them to the test on Hint Five! I still have no clue on what the theme might be. I do think the motif in the middle looks a bit like a church, but I'm not really sold on that.

In other knitting news, I'm almost done with the cap of sleeve #2 of the Nantucket Jacket. I hope to have it done and seamed this weekend!

It does look like a church, but that wouldn't be very universal. Maybe it's a spinning wheel . . . somehow. That's knit-related at least. I thought for sure you would come up with a way to MacGalver blocking wires. Taking the easy, but smart, way out.

Great work on that stole! I don't think I could take doing one of those knit-alongs in parts. I want to know at the outset what I'm in for.

Lookin' good! I'm still behind on all the lace KALs. ;) I hope to be done with Clue 4 on the Autumn one. Thanks for letting me knit vicariously through you. :D

Awesome! I am about 2 rows from being finished with hint 2. I'm determined to catch up so I've been knitting furiously.

Bubbles! And for some reason, it also made me think church. I don't know what it is, but it's very pretty so far.
