I can stop any time I want...
Pattern: Lady Eleanor, by Kathleen Power Johnson (Scarf Style)
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden, colorway 203, 12 full balls and a little bit of a 13th ball
Mods: Knit to a longer length than called for in the pattern (approx. 95 inches long), did not work crocheted edge, did not fringe
I love, love, love this stole. I just never got tired of the pattern, and I never got tired of the yarn or the colorway. I had originally intended to work the crocheted edge but leave off the fringe, but after I washed and dried it, I decided that it didn't need the crocheted edge either. I didn't stretch it to block it, just laid it flat, smoothed it out and left it to dry. The post-wash fabric has a wonderful drape and is so soft.
I finished Lady E in time to wear her yesterday, when Mark and I took a little road trip to one of our favorite local wineries to celebrate our anniversary (10/01):
Since we were so close, Mark suggested that we make a stop at Kathy Zimmerman's shop — Kathy's Kreations — in Ligonier. As an anniversary gift, he bought me a copy of The Opinionated Knitter, a skein of Colinette Jitterbug and some dpn point protectors that I'd been meaning to pick up. I'm a lucky girl!
