Blackberry Ridge Stole

I've just finished three of nine pattern repeats for a stole using the Evening in Eden Stole pattern by Lynda Gemmell of Cabin Fever. I'm using black fingering weight wool from Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill on No. 8 (5.0 mm) needles.

The wool is maybe a bit prosaic for an "evening" stole—something with some glitter might have been better—but the wool will be warm.

Current, unblocked dimensions are 24 inches wide and 23 inches high one-third of the way finished and without the fringe.

P.S. I think this would be a nice pattern in cotton for lace curtains.
