It’s true! I have quite a collection of stoles.  Let’s see…there are six knit, one crochet, and four woven. I do believe I am all wrapped up! Each one of these has a story to share…so many have memories of people who have been and continue to be important to me.

Black/Taupe Crochet Stole…..this was crocheted for me by one of Skein Lane’s customers. Carol is a prolific crocheter and this happens to be one of my favorite pieces that she has ever made. The yarn is Bamboo from Southwest Trading. I was recently  “fussed”  when I discovered  that one of the threads had broken. I quickly dug into my memory bank of darning techniques that Auntie Kate taught me when I was a child.  Success….only I know and now you.

………Bamboo available through Skein Lane Studio
