Mystery Stole #3 - Swan Lake - Finished



Welp, she's all done. Those blocking wires I purchased have once again done a great job and saved me lots of time during the blocking of MS3. I adore the swan's wing, even if it is asymmetrical! The photos do not show the beads, but under the right lighting, they just sparkle. Great knit, and thanks to the designer, Melanie Gibbons.

Details: white Zephyr yarn, 50% silk, 50% merino wool, knit on 3.75mm/5 US. Final measurement: 20" x 74".

Thank you for showing photos of MS3. I'd not been sure how the "wings" would look and thought about not doing them. I'm rethinking that now that I see it on a real person. It's gorgeous.
