When I started this last Sunday night, it was for me, as I said. But I was less than an hour into it when I was told it was for someone else.
So, how did I do it? I had 11 whites, and the dark yarn. Each white was given a number, basically in order of yardage. I cast on 220 stitches and knit 6 rows with the dark before starting the white. I stuck my fist into the bag, with pointer finger extended, and the first yarn I touched was the first pick. I knit however many rows that would make, never stopping in the middle of the ridge, never doing more than 10 rows. Then I knit the same number with the dark yarn. For the next pick, I would choose the yarn that added up to 11 when combined with the first white’s number. I knit the whole ting on size 10 needles. If I had more of a white than I needed for 10 rows, I just set the rest of it aside. When I was almost out of the brown, I stopped. It measures 15 x 66 unblocked and without fringe. Yes, I realize that is 990 square inches plus finishing from Sunday around 9pm til Wednesday at 5pm, roughly. I told you in the title it was God’s stole; it was powered by the Holy Ghost.
God really used the time I worked on this stole to bring some peace to my heart over what has happened in our church. It’s going to the wife of our now-resigned pastor. I hope it brings that same peace to her. I’m waiting on delivery instructions now, but I’ll wash it up and block it tonight or tomorrow.
