cocoon-stitch stole

Today I finished the cocoon-stitch stole which has been on my needles now for over a month:

It really transformed in the blocking. The stitch definition is great, and the yarn feels exceptionally soft and luxurious. Just the thing as the weather begins to turn.

Well, that’s the last time that dress sees the light this year.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca-Silk (mmmm)
Pattern: cocoon stitch (see Martha Waterman’s Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls)
Needles: 7mm

My other exciting news is that Kristen at Knitting Kninja tagged me with one of these:

thank you so much!
