In 15 Days

Phew!  That was the fastest I have ever completed a lace anything.  I had planned on having the month of August and half of September to complete the stole in time for the original reception date.  But due to the incident in Germany, the reception was moved up a month. 

None of my girls were interested in modeling the stole so I snagged one of their friends. Thanks Cat.

The Stole for Laura.

Pattern:  “Scarf or shawl with a center pattern” from  “Victorian Lace Today” by Jane Sowerby.
Yarn: Artyarn’sSilk Mohair, colour “snow”, 2 skeins
Needles:  US# 5, Addi Lace Circular
My variation:  For the center panel I used the repeat section of Chart B from “Scarf with the No. 20 edging from The Knitted Lace Pattern Book, 1850“.

Though it was a fast knit, I am very pleased with the results.

The bunchkins start school next week, so I have some serious back to school shopping to endure.
