This wonderful knit has sadly come to the end. But I'm very pleased with the end product.
I knitted this in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 2 ply called Vanilla. I used 3.75 mm circular needles and size 8 clear crystal beads.
I had a moment of panic when I went to block the stole because several pink blotches appeared on the stole. Fortunately they washed out but I have no idea what caused the colouring.
I also have no idea of the name of the stole! It makes me think of starry nights when I see the beads glinting in the light but at the same time I think of snowflakes, clouds and flowers and funnily enough, brides! Whatever it is I like it and I want to thank the designer Nautical Knitter for a great stole.
This stole is going to go to my neighbour for her 70th birthday. I hope she enjoys wearing it as much as I enjoyed knitting it.
