Lacy Red Stole

Another recently finished project, but this one took only nine months from start to finish, unlike the twenty-year Pi Shawl. This stole is a design by Melanie Gibbons, made using JaggerSpun Zephyr laceweight (50 percent merino and 50 percent silk) from Sarah's Yarns, in the Cinnabar shade. I used number 3 Brittany birch straight needles. The model is my lovely youngest daughter Megan, who was visiting on a rainy weekend at the Oregon Coast.

Lovely Shawl Model

Yes, the Pi Shawl is finally finished, after almost twenty years - and the lovely model is my youngest daughter Megan. The yarn is laceweight wool, a long-ago gift from a friend.
