Swan Lake aka PLT Mystery Stole 3

As promised a little later than stated the finished photos of the stole... I have to say I'm pleased with the end results and is a stole that looks better on than off!!!

Blocking... the mats are brilliant
Post Blocking

Ignore the model please there is no easy way of displaying this shawl without wearing it and as DH refused to model it for me ;o) I had to






Close ups





The blocked size is 20" by 76" (at it's longest point). It was knit on an Addi 3.5mm Lace circular using white Jaggerspun Zephyr laceweight, hand-dyed by myself in tones of apricot. The beads were from ebeads (see my sidebar)

Littleberry it looks fabulous on...I was wondering how the 'wing' would work but I can see how it helps the keep the stole in place now. Thankyou for sharing your modelled pic and your knitting is absolutely stunning.
