2008 seemed to be a lace year for me. I joined not one, but two lace clubs (YOL and Wooly Wonka), in addition to doing one of the Mystic shawl KALs (Mystic Meadows). Stonewall was the third offering in the Wooly Wonka Fibers lace club, featuring one of Anne Hanson's man lace patterns and Wooly Wonka's Celestial yarn.
I haven't done the blocking yet, so I don't know the final measurements. It just came off the needles last night. The lace is an easy, 8 row pattern, staggering the repeats to make a nice undulating pattern. I am strongly considering making each of my three sons one of Anne's man lace scarf/stoles for Christmas, using Hypoteneuse and Oh! Canada as the other two.
I did not do a gauge swatch, as I figure with lace it is only critical to have sufficient yarn. The pattern called for 29 repeats of the 16 row lace, and I did 25. I had only a few yards of the yarn left after casting off - but even unblocked, the scarf/stole is plenty long for a warm hug during winter.
I've really enjoyed Anne's patterns. They knit up quickly, don't get boring, and have nice transitions between sections (if applicable). More details on my Ravelry project page.
