I started this stole ages ago. Got one ball in and got a bit fed up with lace. So it was subject to a hiatus. The WIP along galvanised me to get the old metaphorical finger out and finish it. The 1st picture shows it, unblocked, straight off the needles.
Here is a close up of the stitch pattern on the blocking mat. The horrible blue colour of the mat does detract from the lovely colour of the KnitPicks Shimmer - but the pattern is shown in good definition.
Here it is full length, on the the dinning room table. The mat is an old foam groundsheet (adult size) which may give you some indication of length.
Flow of pattern.
This took 2 balls of Shimmer, knitted on 3.75mm Addi Turbo. The pattern is my own and is as yet nameless as I cannot for the life of me think of a name.......suggestions/ideas welcome. The stole took 40,734 stitches in total. I will post modelled shots when it's all dry.
