Hint one -Aristocracy

Well at least I think that is the answer to the first hint of The Secret of the Stole. It has been a very straight forward pattern so far, I am not sure if that is because the MS3 was like a baptism of fire in the chart reading department or because the Nautical knitter has kindly added a stitch count to each row where there are more than 10st before a change in pattern. A very good idea as you don't have to stop and count. I am putting my beads on with a crochet hook for the is one as well although it is a little fiddly I do think in the long run it is easier as again you don't have to stop and move beads along. If you are wondering why it isn't straight on the needle that is because of the cellotape holding the needle together from when Oriana stood on it. I did toy with the idea of sending off for another pair but with yet another postal strike underway, they may not arrive until the stole is finished.


  1. This is looking lovely! What a great project. :0)

  2. It's certainly an interesting beginning! I've seen suggestions that it's a fishy theme - fish tail or mermaid tail?

  3. Green is one of my favorite colors! I think your stole will be fabulous! I also love the beginnings of your Cherie....

  4. It looks very intriguing, you seem to be making great progress.

  5. Your secret stole is looking lovely up to now. I did join the Secret of the Stole group plus the Secret of Crysopolis but haven't started to knit either one yet. Too much choice! You made a comment on my blog about your curiosity re. natural burials and how we found out about it. Well, natural burials are becoming quite popular these days as well as humanist ceremonies. The Association of Natural Burial Grounds lists a lot of natural burial grounds and explains a bit about it on their website or sometimes local cemeteries have a natural section. The Association of Natural Burial Grounds can also recommend funeral directors who are experienced in natural burials and humanist ceremonies and who offer wicker biodegradable coffins, etc. My MIL made her funeral wishes known in her will and we followed them as closely as possible.

  6. I've still not started mine.....

    Thanks for your comment on Hemlock Ring,the pattern is here
    You'll have to scroll down a bit.
