in all those over air-conditioned places:
The Shetland Stole is complete!
Why wait until fall to use this? This will become my summertime back-of-the-chair wrap for those days when someone in my office thinks that we're running a meat locker. I have an energy-saving idea for every office: turn the thermostat up by five degrees in the summer, and down by five degrees in the winter. But, until that happens, my shoulders will be nice and warm in my Shetland Stole.
Yarn: Yarn All Over handdye, 1.5 hanks, colorway Moss. (The link is here for a reason. Go and buy some of this yarn! It's fabulous.)
Needles: US8s, with US9s for casting on and binding off.
Pattern: ten repeats of the Fir Cone pattern in A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker (scroll down to buy from the publisher).
Finished size: 45 by 22 inches, after blocking. Perfect!
Here I am pondering the next project. I need something for subway knitting. Stay tuned.
