Stole Time

After seeing the last 2 secret of the stoles, I decided it was time to get over my fear of knitting lace with lace weight yarn. Charts don't scare me its knitting lacy delicate lace that gets me. I have no clue why I have issues. Maybe its because I have a 3 yr old and have concentration issues.

I picked out Knit Picks Gloss after originally picking out Knit Picks Shadow. The more I looked at Pink Posy Heather the more I thought it was WAY too pink for my tastes. With Brian's Help we picked out Gloss in Celery. Along with the yarn I got a set of Knit Picks Harmony needles. I have a set of their 32" needles in nickel but they felt too long when I was knitting my sample.

Your yarn choice sounds great! You can always use a little thicker yarn if you want, to get a handle on the lace---it will still be gorgeous, just not as delicate. Be sure to use lifelines!!!!!!!!!
