Print of the Wave

I took my finished Print of the Wave Stole to the knitting night at the coffee shop in Davis last night so I could show it off, and also convince someone to play model for me.

My friend-with-a-yarn-store is very nicely modeling it, since she was wearing a white shirt so as to best show off the lace pattern. You can, unfortunately, sitll see the graft between the two sections, although I don’t think it’s as obvious as the way the original pattern called for. And I have to admit I’m not entirely sure what I gained from doing two pieces and grafting them for the center – if I were to make this again, I would simply do one center piece, all going in the same direction so as to avoid the issue of grafting things altogether.

Next on the needles – pink ribbon sock #12 and a mobius strip cowl, which I am making out of a skein of gorgeous silvery grey alpaca I picked up at Tess Designer Yarns booth at Stitches two years ago. The plan (assuming I have enough yarn to do this) is to finish this and then send it off as my one-skein project to my One Skein Secret Pal.

    The stole is gorgeous. I’ve been watching the progress, but didn’t imagine such a great final result. Blocking is amazing.

    Your shawl is beautiful. I hope some elves notice it while you’re at the convention and convert over. They could use gossamer yarn and make beautiful shimmery things.

    And I hope your Dad continues to improve. My thoughts are with you all.
