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.

Beautiful stole and color choice for the yarn!
You should show more of your work and blog about it. It would be a crime not to. :)
Your daughter makes a wonderful model.
