Stole Finished

August 12, 2013 Nikki 1 min read No Comments

This one has been a little while in the making, or the knitting.  I love the Lord of the Rings story and I’m a fan of the films too so as well as stitching Eternal Promise I was happy to see that there were a lot of knitting patterns inspired by the stories and the films.  The first one I have knitted is Ringwraith stole, full of lovely sinuous lines and a cable pattern.

It’s knitted using DyeForYarn’s Tussah Silk using the colour Raven in the Night, it isn’t as shiny as mulberry silk but it has a beautiful drape and really holds the stitches well.  It holds the water well too, taking most of Saturday to dry.  I finished it with a gentle block to open the eyelets but didn’t want to be too aggressive  to keep those lines soft and sweeping.  Still unsure about adding beads to the end, maybe if I find the right type of beads I’ll add them at a later date.

Knitting now will be continuing with my latest pair of socks while I work out what shawl to knit next.  Stitching continues on Computer Catastrophes, I’ve nearly completed another page and I’m looking forward to the final page of the row.
