Released: Callisto



My newest design is finally done and on sale at Ravelry. I had a hard time naming this one but with some help from a friend I came up with a name I love. See the clean lines and the arches reminded me of Greece and Roman so the name had to come from there I figured. I looked at lots of Greek Goddesses and found Callisto a nymph whose name means "most beautiful." Perfect! This shawl/stole is knit from a provisonal cast on to one end then the stitches are picked up and you knit to the other end. No grafting, which I know makes most people happy. It has beads on the ends that are placed with a crochet hook as you go and a beaded bind off which I really like. Some lace, some beads = lots of fun!
