Baltic Sea stole WIP
Here's the Baltic Sea stole WIP from Fiber Trends. I'm using Rowan Yarns Rowanspun 4 ply, which is a fingering weight yarn, and the colourway is Midnight. I'm using a size 5 (US) 32" Addi Turbo circular needle and it's working up sooooo slowly! Granted I didn't work on it for a couple weeks, but this fine yarn and smallish needles are getting to me! I'm on my 4th ball of yarn and I'll probably use 4 more to complete the stole. The pattern is easy once you get going. It requires increases and decreases on both the front and back of the stole, but the look is great. We are going on holiday for the first two weeks in June (without my knitting!), so I'm not sure when it will get done, but I'll keep knitting away!
I must put in a plug for Cucumber Patch on eBay, which is where I found this wonderful yarn. At only US$20 for 10 skeins and free shipping from the UK, you can't do better. There's a reason this seller has 100% positive feedback. My yarn arrived in perfect condition in just a week. I'll buy from her again (and again!).
