Print o’ the Wave Stole, finished!

I finished the Print o’ the Wave Stole! (Note: As written, Chart B for the edging contains an error. The second-to-last stitch of rows 9, 11, 13 and 15 should be marked as a k2tog.) I knit 34 repeats of the main motif in one long panel, instead of grafting two 17-rep pieces together down the back.

Yarn: Knitpicks’ “Shadow” in “Lost Lake” (dark green, with just a hint of blue and brown). I bought three 50-gram skeins, but only needed 12 grams of the third skein.

Needles: Knitpicks’ “Harmony” wooden circs, size 2.

Finished size: 23″ x 65″

This was my first fine lace project. It was fun and easy, and I got it done much faster than I thought I would — less than a month start to finish. Both lace patterns were relatively easy to memorize, so of course the knitting sped up when I no longer had to refer to the chart all the time.

I wish you could feel the finished stole. It is so soft and fine and light and floaty, yet very warm. It’s a very beautiful thing.

Photos! Because there are so many, I’ll make them small. Click to embiggen.

And now, backwards in time a bit, here it is blocking yesterday. It dried fast in this insanely hot weather:

And here’s what it looked like as I was rounding the final corner with the edging:

Happy birthday, Kirsten :) I’ll pop it in the mail soon!
