For the past few months, I have been working on a very simple design for a laceweight stole for the final instalment of the Black Japan Club. And I finally finished knitting it just minutes before these pictures were taken.
It's called Wings.
It's based on the very popular Japanese Feather stitch motif, and has some shaping down the sides to give it a trapezium shape. A horizontal border is attached at the neck edge at the end, and this forms a collar like edging which is pretty near the face.
My very beautiful and very intelligent niece kindly modelled for me at the Botanic Gardens, and I can honestly say I'm completely delighted with how it came out.
For Black Japan members this pattern will be free with your final package this week, I'm not yet sure whether I'll make it available through ravelry.
And there ends a wonderful long weekend of knitting - I'll post about WWKIP during the week, it was amazing!
