This stole (shown above during blocking) finally moved from WIP to FO last weekend. I had been working on it (not consistently mind you) since last year. Actually, I should qualify my last statement. I had been weaving (yes, weaving) piles of diamonds on my 7" Hazel Rose Diamond Loom from my stash remnants since last year. It didn't really occur to me what my piles of diamonds were destined to become until a few months ago. I was plodding along at a glacial pace before the lightening bolt stuck me brain. After illumination, I definitely rocked and rolled those wool diamonds into stole right snappy.
Here's a pic of my little loom along with one of my first diamonds...
I assembled my little woolen and woven bundles of joy by crocheting them all together with no less than a cone of Lamb's Pride worsted and my trusty G hook.
The finished stole measures about 30" wide by 90" long. It's definitely Autumnal in look and feel.
I have several small looms in various shapes that I use quite regularly. Definitely expect more woven delights from moi!
