Although I love the idea of knitting a swan's wing at the end of this stole, it is absolutely kicking my butt. This morning I put a lifeline in row 132 and began 133. At the end, I was one stitch short. I tinked back, and by the time I got to the beginning of row 133 again, I was missing 5 stitches, and I had some sort of weird knot going on at the far end of the row.
I've frogged back to my previous lifeline at row 122, but I just don't have the heart to keep going at this point. It's not the pattern -- it's not that hard -- but combined with the Skacel Merino Lace, which is the finest yarn I've used since my tatting days, I'm just very frustrated. MS3 has been folded up and put away for a little nap. I'm going to go back to my other WIPs -- Hidcote, the Flared Lace Smoke Ring, Arwen, my Illini socks. I may even block and seam Askew!
I think once I start seeing completed MS3s, I may be excited about it again. In the meantime, I've got plenty of other project to knit. Did I mention that I've ordered yarn for both Bee shawls? ;-)
