I think I am at the half way mark for my SOTS II stole, which is great since the stole KAL ended, um, back in March.
The nice thing about this stole is that there is an ability to add extra rows which I have chosen to do as the Socks that Rock Laci that I am using has 1750 yards (!). It’s currently about 3 feet unblocked and I am hoping that this means that once it’s finished and blocked, it will be about 7 feet long.
The color isn’t quite so vibrant in real life, but putting it outside on the glass patio table to photograph helps show the amazing lace stitches.
In other news, I have turned the heel on my Spring Forward socks. I am getting about 8 stitches per inch using the Duet Skinny and I have to say, I really love this base. It knits up similar, but nice than the Cherry Tree Hill as the stitches seem to have better alignment. This seems to make for a firm, but beautiful fabric.
I wasn’t thrilled with the color at first, but I am really digging it now. It’s a pretty variegated blue that is really playing well with the stitch definition.
I actually was having some difficulty with the lace pattern of the socks at first, but I seem to be into the swing of it now and these are moving along quite well.
