Scheherezade Stole


I finally finished the Coatimundi KAL's Scheherazade Stole today. Took me a long time but then I worked on it only intermittently. It took me about 1050 yards of Knit Picks Shadow on 3.75 mm needles.

Being an novice at blocking, I had sore fingers by the time all the pins were in, but the blocked stole is so awesome! It's like an ugly duckling turning into a beautiful swan. The warm, dry weather dried up the shawl in just half an hour, less than the time it took me to block the whole piece, LOL.

  2. Simply lovely. I am impressed by all the lace knitting lately, but not inspired to join you guys. Instead, I lent my lace books to shells. lol
