Mystery Stole #3 and WINNERS

Knitting this stole was pure pleasure!

Mystery Stole 3 Swan Lake

Pattern: Mystery Stole # 3 (AKA Swan Lake, with my dark version symbolizing Odile) designed by Melanie of Pink Lemon Twist.
Size: 21" X 70"
Yarn: JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 laceweight - 2.5 oz. in indigo. This is the 1st time I've ever knit with this heavenly yarn! Sarah sent me a free color card with my order ...there will be more in my future!
Needles: Bryspun straights US 4 (3.5mm)

I made the asymmetrical winged version (I guess that is obvious looking at these pictures!) and am thrilled with the outcome.The mystery and fun of knitting this stole was enhanced by Melanie's wonderfully different and creative pattern.
As I've said before, I really enjoyed the pace of this KAL - perfect for me, and
I fully plan on making Mystery Stole #4 next year when Melanie's mother will be the designer.

For those that like a blocking picture

As for color accuracy - the one on the chair is true to color. For some reason this indigo blue was not easy to capture.
