First half edging
I've nearly finished the edging on the first half of the stole. I usually use a dpn for knitted-on edging, but this is working just fine with the other end of the circular. On row 4 there's always one stitch that gives me fits with the P2togTBL. It's a stitch over a yo and gets pulled too tight every single time. But I'm learning to anticipate it. I'm anxious to start the second half. I have to admit that I'm enjoying the "resting rows" in this pattern. I can get into a nice rhythm of focusing on the pattern and then doing a quick back row, focusing again, etc. I didn't realize how much I like the Addi lace needles till I was working on another project with lace-weight mohair and a regular Addi. I miss the tapered points.
