FO Friday ~ Leaf and Flower Stole

The Leaf and Flower Stole has been waiting patiently for its FO post.  The knit was actually finished on August 22 and the blocking finished the next week.  Just in time for R and T‘s wedding.  

Leaf and Flower Stole by Linda Choo
Yarn:  The Weaver’s Loft Yarns of Distinction Bamboo — ocean colorway
Needles:  US 5 (3.75 mm)
CO 7.17.12, BO 8.22.12

 I love, Love, LOVE this yarn and pattern together. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. And the yarn is so soft with a lovely sheen.  Purple dye bled seriously (rinsed 5 times before the water was clear) but didn’t affect the other colors.  I wondered about blocking bamboo, but it was no problem and held its shape well with a wonderful drape.  I couldn’t be more pleased.

Don’t forget to visit Tami’s blog to see more FO Friday projects.

Have a great weekend!
