Golden Ostrich Plumes in progress

The skein of Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in ‘Gold’ that I wound into a cake last week has started it’s slow transformation into a thing of even more impossible beauty!

I have in my sights a light, airy rectangular stole that I can drape elegantly over my arms/shoulders at a late August family wedding… Obviously I will then spend most of the day wiping snotty noses, getting smeared with mucky fingers and the like but hey, it might work well as a cover-up for the inevitable stains on the grey linen dress and I could even still look halfway presentable as the lights dim for the first dance… or maybe not but  a girl can dream!

I decided eventually (Ravelry is a baaaad place when one is searching for the perfect pattern, too much choice can definitely suck a knitter into a black hole!) on Veronik Avery’s Ostrich Plume Stole from Knitting 24/7. It was an excuse to buy a book I’d had my eye on for some while and there are several other patterns in the book that will definitely get knit one day!

My yarn is lighter weight than the one used above but I think it will make a super airy stole that will be just beautiful (if I can just memorise the stitch pattern and stop having to tink back to fix mistakes!!)

It’s a work in progress…

2 repeats down, 120+ to go! I’ve got 2 months, give or take a week… What do you think? Can I get it done??

  2. I am just about to start the same stole! Looked for a loooong time, and finally settled for this one. Hope to finish it in time for my daughter’s graduation in May!
