Please can you help me? It has 1125 yards, and I'd really like to use as much of it as possible. I think I'd prefer a rectangular stole and I'd like a pattern that isn't too easy (so not the same short repeat for the whole thing) but also not too hard (eg a purl "rest row" would be great!).
I've come up with these options (some are Rav links, sorry!) - what do you think?
Madli's Shawl (IK Summer 2004) - but probably without the nupps. I particularly like this pattern as it doesn't have a knitted on edge.
The (very similar to Madli's shawl) Large Rectangle in leaf and trellis pattern from Victorian Lace Today (p.54) - the pattern calls for 1200yds but I could do a smaller edging perhaps?
Simurgh by Anne Hanson - I think this is the favourite...It's suitably gothic for this yarn!
The lovely Myrtle Leaf Shawl, also from VLT (p.142) - the downside to this one is that it is patterned on the purl rows too.
Celtic Knot stole - I'm quite taken with this one but wonder if the celtic lace pattern would work with the yarn. Also, I'm not entirely sure I've got enough yarn for this pattern, although I could probably modify it a bit.
Moon Dance - I like this one but worry I might get sick of the pattern after a while.
What do you think? While I'm leaning towards Simurgh, I'd really appreciate your views - and I've got more laceweight yarn (heh), so I can definitely make the runners up at another time!
