WIP Wednesday

It's been a while since I've actually had a WIP Wednesday, but I finally have something to show. As is probably a bit obvious, I've been very uninspired lately when it comes to my knitting. There are a few things that have been lingering OTN because they just haven't spoken to me. I picked up my Victorian Lace Today book the other day and thought I'd finally found something using the red silk, but I wasn't happy with the red silk. So I kept looking and came across something else. It's funny because I ignored this stole earlier in favor of the Hexagon Shawl and The Cap Shawl and several other more elaborate ones. But this one spoke to me the other night because of its simplicity. And you know what, I have a bit more of that wonderful alpaca silk from Webs (I LOVE that stuff!) in a wonderfully rich purple. Simple stripes of diamonds with a border.

Just a simple stole with a fairly easily memorized pattern on size 7s. I'm sure I'll complain when it comes time for the border, but right now, this is what I need.

That sounds like the perfect stole, simple and beautiful. I'm going to have to remember that pattern for that very reason. And the purple is just gorgeous, very regal.

Oh I love it! What a gorgeous purple. So far what I love about VLT is the simplicity of a lot of it's designs. It's got such lovely geometric designs.

Very pretty! Great purple. Simplicity is very valuable. There's no fudging with simplicity, as changes in gauge or mistakes will easily show. I don't think it's always true to equate simplicity with easy.

Very pretty color and pattern! Anything that gets the mojo working is worthwhile and it's lovely to boot!
