It's A Wrap....Or a Skydive Stole




I really loved knitting this Stole. 
Cabin Fever Knits pattern. 
One row repeat. 
Lace....(Squeal....I finally learned my second lace pattern) 
I used Jitterbug sock yarn in beige for the stole and cream for the fringe.  The pattern does not call for fringe, but I wanted some fringe. 
Love me some fringe. 
I gave it a lovely little bath in a basin and opened it up on towels to block it.  No pins, just a bit of shaping and it worked. 
The lace really opened up. 

Neutrality...neutrals....let's call it quietly pretty. 

This baby is all mine.
I see myself in it in the Outerbanks with Al this summer as the nights get cool.  

Oh yeah, I've already cast on another. 
There is some happy knitting going on here....

I hope you are having some knit happiness today too!

I have been knitting lacy items more and scarves and shawls. I do have a throw on the needles for one of my sisters. It was to have been for her birthday that was a week ago. I have gotten behind on it. It is heavy and sort of cumbersome so hopefully she might have it for Christmas. I have knit this item before a few times. I really like the finished product it is just getting to the finished product that is sort of a pain.

I love it!! I absolutely adore it! You did a beautiful job and the fringe is a beautiful change-up. I can't wait to see the next one.

That looks perfect for those chilly restaurants where they have the a/c turned down to fast-freeze!

Congrats on the beautiful finish! :-)

Ooh, ooh, ooh! It's gorgeous. I can see it going equally well with jeans or with a little black dress.

I never used to like fringe much, but these days I do. It's so swishy and fun. :)

It is beautiful, simply gorgeous. I love me some neutrals. God see the wild horses when you go visit Al.

Quietly pretty indeed! It looks great, and I love that fringe. It's neutral, but at the same time provides a lovely contrast. Damnit, Kathy, I might have to give this pattern a go, huh?

Fantastic finish!

This shawl is lovely. I'm not a fringe person but yours looks lovely. I'm new to your blog. I'm recently retired, too, after 26 years in healthcare as a chaplain. I agree with your recent postings about nurses and nursing. You are under appreciated by most physicians but loved and valued by patients, family members and other colleagues like chaplains. I enjoy your blog.

I don't think you'll need it in NC in July.... maybe if we go to a restaurant or the movies if it rains!
