Summer Lace: Dark Star

Finally my Dark Star stole is complete. This is one of the many lovely designs from BadCatDesigns.



My stole measures 173 cm by 102 cm (68"x40"). The yarn is Ripples Crafts Hand Dyed Yarn in Steely Blue. This is a luscious Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere lace weight yarn. A real pleasure to work with. Oh and the needle size, 3.0 mm circulars.



Its really hard to get the full impact of this stole without a willing model!





Now I need to spend some time on my Summer Squares blanket.
