In the studio
Stole, turkish lace stitch, size 17 wood needles, polyester and metallic yarn
This is the piece that has been driving me crazy. I've now ripped it out about ten times. I think I'm going to give up the idea of making a garment out of it. There seems to be no way I can get it to drape in a way that I like, or in a way that could make it pleasant to wear for more than about five minutes.
It might make a very lovely purse if worked on small needles so that the fabric is a good firm one.
