In which a mystery finds me

I am insane. Officially.

Haven't finished the swallowtail shawl, but saw Kay's post on the Mystery Stole 3 project and, impulsively, joined. My inbox is now brimming with lacy goodness, two balls of Jaggerspun Zephyr, charcoal colorway, now sit in my yarn bin, and I'm contemplating seed beads. No joke.

I love this community, I love this feeling of being a part of something big and creative and international and overwhelming and challenging, and I can't wait to start the stole.

That said, I am heading out of town for an indeterminate amount of time because my grandpa is sick. I hope to finish the swallowtail soon, but who knows? With two kids and lots of hospital time...they sort of balance each other out in terms of knitting time. Which stinks, because when I am upset and nervous I can really use something to put my hands to use.

Oh, and I forgot to say that a big factor for me in signing up for MS3 was that the designer, Melanie, is allowing an extra week around the Harry Potter book release. We get our clue early, and we get two weeks until the next clue (i.e. portion of the pattern). A woman after my own heart.

Um...cool but the designer's name is Melanie. Welcome to MS3! I was a bystander for MS2 but I'm hoping to keep up through the first clue!
