I finished the stole! I still need to block it. Gotta figure out a safe place to do it where the puppy can't help out. I am pleased with it. I do have a couple of errors, but I figure that is where the stole will be pinned.
I am on the 3rd celtic cable repeat on the first sock. I followed the pattern using the toe up method. Still not convinced it is worth the trouble. But I will muddle through.
