Here Comes the Stole, All Knit in White...

The following is the wedding song for the Scotch Thistle Lace Stole that I knit with the Lanett by Sandnes Garn.
Here comes the stole,
All knit in white,
Sweetly, serenely in soft glowing light.
Lovely to see, this was knit by me
Sweet little stitches for all eternity.

New knitting rule: Whoever knits the
bridal stole gets to pick the
music for the ceremony!

I was worried that the fingering weight might make the stole a bit too heavy, but in looking at the pics I think it came out just fine. The Lanett is a very soft, washable wool that comes in wide variety of color choices, and lent itself well to lace. I would not hesitate to make another lace project with it. In fact, there may be a little Lanett in my stash right now just waiting its turn in the gift queue...

You can see the thistle leaves and buds in this pic, and the color went well with her dress.

Congratulations to Mellissa and Mike. I wish you much happiness. Be good to each other, and that stole!

I am still plugging away on the Twinings Lace stole for DMS, and I have only had to lay on the floor and kick my legs once in the past week.

I may have to work on a something a little less intense than lace, yes concurrently, and that might be the Twisted Vine Neck Warmer as it appears to be short and sweet. I have not decided on a fiber for this yet, but I am considering the Malabrigo worsted.
