HOT OFF THE PRESS (... and the needles....)

This morning, at our weekly Victoria Knitters Guild meeting, I finished and cast off my Secret of the Stole. I LOVE it, and I'm so glad I did it, even though it's been quite a challenge, and a love/hate relationship right from the start.

My friend Esther took these pics for me ...

Here's a close-up of the design ...

And, finally 2 or 3 of the members helped me hold it up -- it's over 8' long!


The yarn is 100% laceweight cotton (with some slubby texture to it) in a pale baby blue color, and I knit it on 4mm needles.
