Well, I started the stole pattern that you guys picked out for me. Now I am restarting. The recommended needle size for this stole is US 7 or 8. I went against my better judgment and started with a US 7. Way, way too big for my taste!! So, I am going to restart with a US 4 and see what happens. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, here is the carnage, and a little Blazer sandwich to keep you distracted. No animals were harmed in the creation of these photos.
