Forest Path Stole is composed of little blocks of lace the are patchworked together. There were three lace patterns woven through. After one square is done, you pick up stitches along the edge and start another lace square. The edging and the triangles are made of a moss stitch which helps it lay flat.
As I said in my previous post, I spent 8 months knitting this. That's the longest I had ever spent on one project. After many cups of coffee and many hours of knitting, I finish it and gave it to my friend for her 50th birthday.

Planning a year ahead, I took on a big project. First I bought some yarn that was so thin I couldn't work with it and I scrapped the project after a few days. Then I got this teal wool-silk blend and even though it's lace weight, it was a little bit easier to work with.
