Clerical Stole

MMario's picture

I am almost done with a clerical stole I knit for my nephew's ordination. (11 am, saturday - he will be ordained a Deacon in the Episcopal Church)

Red wool, sport weight from Black Oak Wool of Dundee NY (I think they are out of business now)
Knit on size US 3 needles.

about 4 inches x 110 inches, with eyelet lace designs for about 16 inches either end.

All I have left to do is finish sewing the backing on, then steam blocking it.

I posted pictures out in my folder at Knitted lace.

Hand sewing; I wanted a silk

Hand sewing; I wanted a silk satin for the backing - but time constraints and $ (mostly time constraints) means I settled for a nice cotton twill that is MUCH, much easier to sew on.

The idea is to make him as many of the different stoles he needs (red, white, green, purple are the basics, black, blue, rose are the supplemental colours) as I can as fast as I can. Since the Bish decided to go with red for the ordination (normally either red or white) that came first.

The white one wil probably be a lily of the valley variation. I'm hoping to find a nice vine pattern for the green.

I've made a lot of stoles... ( not knitted) ...silk duppioni works well for linings...it's not too slippery...and not expensive.
