I'm finished at last with the knitting of the Lace Stole. I borrowed a blocking board from a friend to block the stole. What a great tool! It's so much easier to use the board than a towel on the table and the measuring tape! I knitted the stole a bit longer than the pattern suggested, and it came out a bit wider. This despite getting gauge on my swatch and a couple of gauge checks as I knitted. It doesn't really matter for this project thought so I'm fine. The fabric is doubled for the blocking so it will fit on the board. It will be 72 inches in length and 16 inches wide. It's 100% bamboo - Plymouth Royal Bamboo. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out!
