Feeling totally lame...
This is the Sampler Stole by Hazel Carter in A Gathering of Lace. I'm not usually a shawl person. Most days you'll find me in my beloved tank top and sweats - anything with collars, waists, etc is anathema to me. In fact, I usually wear my tank tops inside out to avoid direct contact with seams. So you can forget about dresses. But there was something about this stole and its photo in the book against a wrought iron fence that spoke to me. It looked impossibly ephemeral, like fog or mist or a half forgotten memory. And I had to make it.
I used Jaggerspun Zephyr - that delectable combination of whisper thin merino and silk in the sage colorway, but I think it would also be lovely in Kidsilk Haze or Habu silk-wool, or any of the other lovely lace-weight yarns available these days.
Here's a close up:
Yes, that's a mistake in the first row of elongated hexagons where I somehow skipped a stitch, shifting everything. I didn't notice it until the stole was blocked. And I didn't do the border. I like my shawls rectangular and free of frills, but if I had to do it over again, I would probably widen it by one column of motifs to compensate for the fact that it lacks an edging.
It's been stuffed in a drawer for the past 2 years. I think I've used it once. And it sorely needs a good reblocking.
