Here's is my homage to that famous National Geographic cover:


Only more in need of a haircut.

The Juno Regina stole is done!  The specs: 2 skeins of Malabrigo Lace (which is my new favorite laceweight yarn ever) in Dusty. Purchased from The Loopy Ewe. No pattern mods other than that. The only tricky bits with the stole are the ends, which look like this:


And this:


It's more pink and less red in person. It is also delightfully squishy.

You can't come to my house to squish it, tho. This particular stole will be auctioned off on the 27th to raise some funds for Heidi's Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. If you are interested in owning this bad queen (or, of course, contributing to the cause) contact Heidi. I'm sure she'd be happy to take your money.

The next thing I'm knitting for someone else is a surprise. I can tell you that two of these three yarns will be used. I'm just not sure which two yet. Thoughts?


Lastly, my progress on the Starmore. Yup, just breezing along now!


I think it'll go much faster when I get past the purl rows. That's what I keep telling myself, anyway.


Lovely work, all of it. Your eyes need to be greener, though. BTW an interesting follow-up to that photo:

The stole is bee-yoo-tee-ful!

As for the yarn choice, I say leave out the paler gray - go with the blue and the richer/darker silver.

ooooh, that's beautiful! Very nice :)

Oh, it's gorgeous! And I can't wait to squish it myself. Thank you so much for donating your time and effort to this.

Nice photo! You do beautiful work.

Have it! Love it!

(now I have to figure out how to approximate its value...any thoughts?
