"Birch" For The "Booty-full"- FO- Update!!!!!

"Birch" For the "Booty-full" FO- Update!!!!
The stats:

Bulky Lace Stole- "Birch for the Booty-ful" (my own pattern-Rowan's beautiful "Birch" is triangular- I prefer NOT to have things point to the booty area! As mine is a bit "FULL"

Lace Pattern: Bernadin's Sampler "Perky Leaves Ground" from The Lacy Knitting of Mary Schiffman

Yarn: Knit Picks Panache- Alpaca, silk & cashmere blend- YUM. Color- Coal (appx 10 skeins)

Needles: US #10- Lantern moons- ebony.

I wanted something yummy- and warm---- to wear over a t- with jeans- or with a black dress- for special occasions... I also wanted to give the Panache a try- VERY glad I did! I use just under 10 skeins.

I'll post the dimensions after she's dry------- blocking under a fan for now-----(to hurry along her drying--- but mostly- to keep my kitties off- of her while drying--- they don't like to sit in fan- blowing range. So far- it's the only thing I've found to keep them off my blocking projects!)

BTW- I'll be picking up blocking wires this afternoon- as I ran out of pins----and had to "Improvise" a bit in my blocking technique..... as you'll notice in the pics... This one may need to be re-blocked. We'll see.

The lace pattern was simple- 10 stitch 16 row repeat- there are 10 repeats per "tale". Two tales, then grafted together.

I'll post the complete pattern if anyones interested- for now- I'm getting ready for Valentines day!
