New Fish On the Block

Well, actually two new fishes on the block, but only one was willing to pose for the camera. Meet Knit--his/her friend Purl is hiding in the water lettuce somewhere. They joined the Pug family yesterday and are the first inhabitants, outside of vegetation, of the new water feature (pond to you) that Mr. Pug built in the back yard. I hope that Purl will show herself (for I feel sure that someone as beautiful as that fish has to be a girl!) soon.

And while we're showing off here at Chez Pug, here's Clue 3 of the Mystery Stole 3 complete, just in time for the new clue (#4) to be published this morning. I pulled it out as if it was being blocked and it's about 28" long. Melanie says that we can expect the finished stole to be about 3 times the length it is now, in this case 84".

Somewhere in the middle of this clue I need to make a decision about whether I want to lengthen it. The added length is about 11", which would make a 95" stole. I'm guessing that since the Helen's Laces is knitting up very openly and loosely, maybe 84" will be fine. We'll see when we get further along.
