I've started a new stole. This is the Lilac Leaf Stole (rav link) from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush. The fist lace pattern is done along with the first few rows of the second pattern. If you look closely, you'll see the first nupps just below the live stitches. It is proving to be a quick knit; I started last night.
The yarn is a new one we are dyeing now. It is Silk-Linen in a heavy lace weight (about 3000 yards per pound). After dyeing it, I had reservations. It was crunchy and seemed flat, showing its linen side. Once it went through the ball winder, it changed into a soft drapey yarn reminiscent of cotton. I am really enjoying knitting on it.
The color is a quiet blue. A departure from my normal color choices which is adding to the interest.
