Finally (almost) finished with the white stole which technically was my-niece-the-priest's Christmas present - sending it to her this weekend. this is based on a lace sampler Pam Allen used as part of a lace class at the Knitter's Review Retreat last November. Backed with a cotton twill. I do have a few ends to weave in and about four inches of lining left to sew. The yarn is laceweight wool from Knitpicks. Size 5 needles I think.
Today was my-nephew-the-priest's b'day - and his stole isn't done (Surprise!) but I got a picture of it anyway. (attached as file) - The yarn is knitpicks - shimmer I think, in "leprechaun'; the leaf pattern is the one that was used in 'column of leaves' scarf - but I got it from a book published in the 1800's. The center cross of the stole is done in reverse stocking stitch. Size 3 needles.
