My daughter didn't remember why she had three skeins of black yarn so she gave them to me. I wanted to make something to give back to her and this is the result...

Pattern Summer Lace Stole is from wenswoolgathering.wordpress.com It measures approx. 23 x 72 inches. My first really "lacey" project. Worked in two pieces then grafted.

Beautiful! How thoughtful of you to return the yarn this way. Is it a surprise?
