Shetland stole

I just finished this traditional Shetland stole. It measures about 80 x 200 cm and is knitted from 91 grammes of 1 ply Shetland Supreme which is about 1500metres. The patterns are from Sharon Miller's book "Heirloom Knitting".
Best regards from a sunny Denmark

That is just gorgeous, Aage. I really like the way you tied together the center design and edging by using the same motif. Congratulations.

My fingers just can't manipulate that gossamer wheight yarn - I am so jealous, I mean really jealous - I doubt that I will ever be able to reach that level of knitting. One of the most beautiful pieces I've seen!

Thanks for all the kind comments.
To Kerry: The name of the center pattern and the edging is "Elaborated Print O' the Wave" The borders are the "Tree of Life" pattern.
Best regards
