The Rebozo StoleThis is a wonderful design from Cheryl Oberle featured in Folk Shawls. I helped Sandy pick out this yarn, Silky Wool and Silky Wool Tweed, for a stole for one of her relatives. And then Sandy’s health condition got worse…she wasn’t able to recover and she left us in March 2006. I inherited this part of her yarn stash….I loved the project itself and had such fun helping her to pick out the yarns. And then I had the fun of knitting  it ….a special memory of Sandy.

…..Silky Wool is available through Skein Lane Studio; Silky Wool Tweed has been discontinued.

Diane also knit the Rebozo.  She used Shetland Wool. After wearing it a couple of times, she discovered that the yarn had broken on her cast-on row. She didn’t remember what method she used, but it was taut….and it continued to break and break along the cast-on row.  Finally, we cut that black edge off…..oh, yes, it was black! We picked up the stitches and then bound them off. Another success story…with a few choice words along the way. But the end result was that we were both very happy for Diane.
