Despite all the work I’ve been doing at the shop, I have found a little time to knit this summer. My summer project is the Rhea Stole, worked in an alpaca / silk hand dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer. Pictures of lace in progress are not very exciting, but here it is.
This is (or will be) a long rectangular piece of lace, with two very pretty border sections at each end. The border strips are worked vertically, then attached to the seemingly never ending body, which is a very simple two row repeat.
I’m knitting this for a non-knitting friend, who asked if I’d knit it up as a gift for one of her good friends.
The project started in late May and it has been my constant companion while watching Red Sox games, the Deadliest Catch, and True Blood.
Hopefully it will be finished sometime in August, so the friend of a friend will have a lovely warm scarf this fall.
