The Stole is a super straightforward knit by designer Theresa Gaffey.
The pattern is found in the publication, Wearwithall - Knits for your Life! This book includes several knits that appeal to me, like this, this and this!
Now back to The Stole, or should I say, My Stole! I chose colors close to the original pattern (I understand the original colors were discontinued or renumbered). Anyhow, my shades are right on!
What a Grand project for the beginning knitter with the simple Knit/Purl Rib Pattern. One might think knitting all that ribbing would work itself into a state of boredom, but that is the furthest thing from the truth. This was a relaxing and intoxicating knit that lead from one pretty color to the next, just let the fiber do most of the work for you .
Alpaca 2 (fingering)
Needle: #3 US (40" circular)
Knitting Schedule: August 7 - September 19
The Stole is my second project using Isager and certainly will not be my last. Both the lace weight and the fingering weight resulted in the softest, best feel against the skin goodness you have ever experienced. I simply can hardly wait to knit my next Isager project!
LYS that carry Isager are few and far between. I purchased my Isager by mail from HillsboroughYarn, and as always, was most impressed and pleased with their helpful, experienced team and major quick delivery! (I hear they are the largest Isager retailer in the states)
The Stole and Isager are all the buzz with knitters in my area and may be just that knit you are dreaming for....!
Hugs & Purls!
