Twinings

For today's finished project feature, I have this wonderful shawl by Anne C.:



This is Anne's version of the "Twinings" Stole by Anne Hanson of KnitSpot. You can find the pattern for Twining's in Anne's shop and also just recently added to my Etsy shop (in the Patterns section).

Anne C. made this stole using FF Classic Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Midnight Rendezvous colorway. I love to see this yarn used for shawls! It's quite a bit heavier and thicker than my Laceweight Merino of course, but it's still thin enough to create good lace definition. The result is a piece that knits ups quickly and has a bit of weight and warmth. It's a nice option whether you're seeking the added weight for a particular piece or whether you're a new knitter that wants to work with a slightly heavier yarn for your first lace pieces.

Here's a closeup of the lovely detail:



Didn't Anne do a wonderful job?! Lovely! A big Thank You to Anne for sharing her photos.

Everyone have a great start to your week!

This is a beautiful stole, and it's quickly making me think about using the yarn I bought for Anne's Stung Honeybee Stole for Twinings instead. I really think I like it better than Stung.

Gorgeous yarn!!!

Sorry about the previous comment - it had a glaring grammatical error in it, and I couldn't correct it. It had to go.

My question: how many hanks were used to make this stole? Thanks!
