The white stole is one I knitted years ago and have gotten a lot of use out of. My new 'readers wrap' stole is measuring about 2 inches wider and I am off on the gauge by 1 inch. (but of course) I'm getting 8 WPI. I'm using a '9' circular. Marlene, would you email me with any advice? I don't know whether to continue or not with this pattern. It seems like it will be very bulky. The white yarn was a common posy like 'Red Heart' but soft and knitted up nicely. I'd love to know what you think about this. You can see my spinning results aren't perfect...yet...grin. But, its very pretty but seems heavy for this pattern.
