And now for those stoles on the needles…………..

The Washcloth gone Stole – In my enthusiasm to promote MaggiKnits yarns ….like she needs any help…but I did want to show her yarn in a more conservative view….I was inspired by the washcloth that Kimberly had just knit from the Fiber Trends pattern by Evelyn Clark, 215x, Bathing Beauties. So another stole was cast on. It is a very easy pattern with great results. My goal is to have it finished by June….OMG, I just realized it’s almost the middle of May. I must click those needles. Then I will move onto my last stole, which is already in progress.

…….Yarn and pattern available through Skein Lane Studio.

Point Edge Wrap – As I was sorting through my UFO’s recently I came upon this one that I started when I had the shop. In my excitement to show something else, this stole got put aside…and darn if I didn’t forget about it. Well, I do want to finish it….once again, simple lines with great results. The pattern, Point Edge Wrap, comes from Debbie Bliss’s book Cathay. The yarn that I am using is black Cathay – a blend of 50% cotton, 35% viscose microfibre, 15% silk.

……Black is no longer available but other colors and the book are available through Skein Lane Studio.
