FO: "Japanese Feather" Stole
This seemed to take forever plus one day!

It used 6 balls of Jojoland Melody superwash. Lots and lots of yardage. Gah! I knit two balls, and took a month break. Knit another 2 balls...took another month break. Like that!

It's 36"x72". I'm aiming to take it with me to air-conditioned events (with our church, dressy) this summer, to toss over my legs, or around my shoulders...and not look like an ancient old lady with a flannel blanket on her knees!







My Rav notes.

Well forget ancient old lady with her flannel blanket and say hello to elegant woman in gorgeous wrap. I'm not surprised that it took awhile after seeing the outpouring of lovely finished items in just the past few days. Another terrific addition that is a pleasure to see. You're an inspiration!

I've never had so many WIPS in my life! Major projects, all 75-95% complete, except for blocking, or seaming!

I have one.additional cardigan ready for blocking. I should be doing it right now as I type! The weather has been sunny and warm, the sun pours in the windows of my knitting/blocking room...and the Wings of Desire scarf and Japanese Feather stole dried overnight!

We've been trying to economize on electricity this past winter, heating only our family room to 72, and allowing the rest of the house to drop to whatever it wants to...but those chillier room temps don't work very well with wet knits on a blocking table. I swear, some of the pieces could mold before they dried!

Love these colors, and the pattern is gorgeous. I've been wanting to make something similar to this, but I have yet to find the perfect yarn.

Great work!
