Update on the Shetland Lace Stole

I seem to be zipping along on my Shetland Lace Stole at the moment. I don't know why sometimes I stall on some projects and just get inspired on others. I would guess that Katherine of Aragon is stalling because I have finished to repeats of the pattern and still need to do 1 1/2 more before any variety comes into the pattern. (In the form of a steek.)

The Shetland Lace Stole has provided a lot more interest lately, however. The border includes a different motif in every pattern repeat. So, of course, I zipped along on the border and have started the edging. I edging is perhaps a little wider than I was hoping for but I felt that the elements went well with the rest of the design. The sad part is that I feel as if I am almost all done which I am not. Sharon Miller says that she only does 4 edging repeats per day. At that rate the edging would take me about 20 days. I am not sure that I can knit that fast, however. The good news is that maybe the stole will be ready for a spring unveiling.

Beautiful job on your lace shawl! You knit pretty darned fast considering how thin you are knitting if you ask me. Can't wait to see how it blocks out!
