Canterbury Bells

This is the lovely Canterbury Bells stole pattern I've been test knitting for Laura at FiberDreams It's been great fun, I really quite like test-knitting.


I used less than one and a half balls of Jaggerspun Zephyr in colour Ice Blue on 3.75mm KnitPicks Options but I think my tension must have been a bit off because my stole isn't quite as big as it should be - it measures 20" x 70" blocked. I must have been tense - that's when I knit more tightly.


The pattern is available now from Laura either here or on ravelry.

I had hoped to be able to take some photographs with the semi-wild Canterbury Bells growing on the edge of the wood but everythng here is so late that they are still in tight bud; I think they'll be in flower in a few days.

I love how your stole came out, gf, even if it is a bit smaller than expected. Drat! Thank you again for your wonderful test knitting!
