Valentine's Day is usually associated with chocolate, dinner, and roses. I like to think that knitters are a little easier to buy for than that. In this particular case, the Cuddly Hubby was kind enough to give me a White Lotus Stole kit. The design is by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer. The kit includes three balls of Colinton 3000 yarn, plenty of beads, the pattern, and a supply of Unicorn fibre wash. The yarn is undyed Australian mohair. It feels softer than it looks, and I suspect it will soften even more with use. I've done a little lace, but this kit is a nice chance to try something a little more complicated without getting into something crazy complex.
