Secret of the Stole II: Hints 7 & 8

Written by: Lindy

March 25, 2008

I finished hint 7 on 3/13/08, but had no time to post pictures.
You can see the length of the stole and the arch on the right edge.
This is a truly beautiful lace pattern and the cashmere yarn makes
it very special.

Close up view of hint 7 — I just love this pattern!

Finished up hint 8 on Easter Sunday evening (3/23/08) and took pictures this morning. Close up shot shows the continuation of the “squares”.

This picture shows the length of the stole and its lovely drape.
Hint 9 came out a week ago, so I did not complete this KAL before the theme and name were revealed. Meet the lovely “Savannah”.

On to knit hint 9 — I hope to finish this week — the wedding is two weeks from last Saturday, but I should have enough time to finish knitting and block the stole.

Secret of the Stole II: Hint 6 Completed 3/13/08

I finished hint 6 last Thursday but haven’t had time to post the pictures.
The stole is now two-thirds completed and is about 40 inches long.

The pattern continues with the lovely motifs that are repeating as we knit.

I have hint 7 nearly completed and I hope to finish it this evening.
I will post Friday.

Since hints 8 & 9 are now out, it’s clear that I am behind and will not
complete this KAL on the timeframe. I should, however, have it done and blocked in time to give it to the bride for her wedding day.
