Louisa Harding Stole

Hot off the needles is this Louisa Harding stole. The yarn was purchased at "Knit by the Sea" while I was at camp "Knit-a-Way" and started on October 20th. I knit it in chunks at soccer games and in the evenings a little each night most nights. As you can tell, I am quite a slow knitter :o). It's the process I love. FO's are a great thing, but I just love the feel of yarn and needles - it is so quieting to my soul! This picture does not do the yarn justice. It has a line of sparkels running down the center of each ribbon piece and the whole thing just shimmers.

Up close.

That's great Connie. It's nice to see some of the projects that people got started in Carmel...and you are way ahead of me...I have not even wound the yarn I bought there.
