I've been knitting lace a lot this year; right now I'm knitting a summer stole from some salmon-colored laceweight I bought in Chicago. The pattern is compiled from Shetland lace patterns in Sharon Miller's Heirloom Knitting. My plan is to knit the body from the Madeira and Diamonds pattern, and the Doris edging. I'm not sure if I'm going to include borders at each end.
I think it will be lovely.
Or could be.
I've knitted about 50 rows.
Of course, they consist of the same five rows 10 times.
Perhaps next summer.
