The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful

I don't know why I do these things. Sometimes I just get on a roll and want to finish a particular project. This one was one of them. I have been knitting the edging for days. The good news first: the stole is done and is blocking. The bad news: my hands hurt. The body of the stole was not a problem. It didn't hurt my hands. The edging did. You pick up sts all around the perimeter of the stole and knit the edging. I think the problem was the k3tog and sssk's that were part of the edging. Or maybe the 800 or so sts...

Anyway it is done. I am going to rest my hands for a few days by doing non-knitting things.

And last but not least, the beautiful: isn't it a lovely pattern? I am very pleased with the outcome.
