The True Love Stole has been blocked and is ready for action!
Here it is pinned out.
Do you see something unusual? There is no fluffy kitty reclining on the stole! I have no idea why, but during the whole pinning out process, Lucy sat on the sidelines, watching. This is a first for her.
I don’t think it was the dampness of the shawl deterring her. I mean, it’s not like that has never stopped her in the past.
Here’s a close-up shot.
And unpinned and relaxing on a chair:
Gwendolyn wanted to model the new shawl as well:
I used about 1000 yards of Jojoland Cashmere and a 3.25mm needle. Blocked dimensions are approximately 24″ by 66″.
It will be a while before the pattern is ready. I need to re-knit the mitered corners to better document them for the pattern and I need to find time to do that.
Now, back to knitting on the Stacy shawl. I see that a few of your asked questions about this shawl in the comments — I’ll answer ’em next week!
“I could lie on the stole, but the color washes me out.”
