So glad to see other KH MS3 folks! I am going to be knitting mine in Ebony (black) Zephyr with "Gunmetal" beads. The beads are a shiny very dark grey and are more visible against yarn than the true black beads while still being subtle (I hope). I started my swatch at SnB earlier this week, but haven't finished it yet (that pesky thing called work taking up too much time :teehee:) I will most likely use size 4 needles since I like the swatch so far, but I am debating ordering some KP Options in the right size. I used Options on another lace project and loved the pointy tips, so I'll probably get them for this too. Oh darn, I'll have to buy a few other things to get free shipping. :shrug: It's times like this I'm glad I have my own credit card that DH doesn't see.
