I said I would post a photo of my Faux Russian Stole today. Cookie said she was interested and seeing one and since it's really thanks to her that I'm even knitting it, i thought I oughta.
See, I had the book this Stole pattern was published in, but I would not have looked at it twice if it wasn't for the fact that she knitted a really beautiful one.
Yes, I knit with old aluminum straights. I think they are just as good as any other fancy needle. I like them. I have had people put them down, but they knit as well as any needle. An artist will create art with whatever's handy ya know? not that I'm an artist.
So I'm about halfway through the fourth repeat of the design (you gotta knit 5.5 repeats and then some edging you attach as you go. I guess it's almost time to pick a new lace project :(
I also finished ALL the singles for the sweater project I am working on for the Tour de Fleece. I even think I might have picked out a sweater to knit - more later.
Tomorrow I'll ply and be done! Woo hoo!
