Iím excited to start on the stole for mom Ė it is so much nicer when someone actually expresses a desire for something knitted. Since this project isnít going to be a surprise, Iíve had her review a number of choices and select her favorite. Her favorite choices were all very simple, geometric patterns, nothing fussy or complicated, no granny-lace, which didnít surprise me Ė that was my own preference when I first started looking at lace stoles. It gives me hope that I can complete the stole in time for her birthday while maintaining the Knit a Sweater A Month project.
