Secret of the Stole iii

I lied. I did finish. Unblocked shot at 10 pm Saturday night:

pattern: Secret of the Stole iii
yarn: Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in discontinued colorway Moss, 2.5 skeins
needles: Knit Picks size 5 nickel-plated circs

Taking pics of a natural green stole outside is hard.

I wasn't very good at directing the monkeys on how to hold the stole either.

I forgot the digital camera & DH forgot the rest of the classic camera film, so no pics of the stole at the wedding. Not that I needed it 'til later in the evening. It was an afternoon outdoor wedding and the weather turned out beautifully for our friend.

Since I finished so early, I just used crochet thread and t-pins to block the stole. The welding rods I asked DH to get from work won't get here 'til tomorrow, so I should re-block the straight edges and the one curved side that didn't curve so well.

Okay, off to finish my Monkey2's second sock, work on my MS4, and start all that holiday gift knitting. I feel a hat attack coming on...
