Vkandis and Mystic Light Updates

I finished chart 1 for Vkandis this morning and ran a lifeline, don't want to rip it completely again. I'm planning on spending today working on him. Hoping to get charts 2&3 done, but will get a far as possible.

I finished clue 2 on Mystic Light this morning as well, then ran a lifeline. Hoping to get pictures later, as it is cloudy today. I love the way it is turning out!

New Update

I ended up frogging Vkandis Sunlord, as I couldn't fix the dropped stitches. I decided since I was having to start over on him, I would go down two needle sizes. I like the way he is looking now better than on the size 6 needles I was using. I'm already almost done with the first chart again.

Since I will be using yarn of the same weight for the Mystic Waters and Slow-Bee Mystery shawls, I will have to wait until I finish Vkandis to cast either of them on. The yarn is on order, so I will have it when I am ready to cast one of them on. Which one depends on how long it takes to get Vkandis done.

Vkandis SunlordI'll start with Vkandis Sunlord. I'm on row 96 out of 318, plus an optional knitted on border that is done over about 1300 stitches. I'm adding beads to the fourth set of rays for the sunburst, as it needed something to make it sparkle a bit. The beads are about the same shade as the yarn, but are pearlized. After I finish this set of rays, there is a band of firecats, then the border, to do.

Mystic Light Clue 1 finished!!Next is the Mystic Light KAL, this is a triangular shawl designed by Anna, aka KnitandKnag. I'm using Berroco Comfort Sock in the colorway "Hari Hari," and it is turning out beautiful. I ordered the pattern for the first shawl of the series, Mystic Waters and waiting on yarn to knit it in.

The Secret of the Stole II is still waiting for me to get back to it. I'll be starting the Slow-bee Mystery KAL, as soon as I get the yarn for it. I'm ordering some 6/2 weaver's cotton in Ultramarine from WEBS, to use for it and the Mystic Waters shawl.
