I designed this pattern and knit this stole to fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society. I wanted to create something that evokes strength, beauty and the power of each of our lives.

The candleflames at the ends of the stole serve as symbols of individual lives, and the woven lace motif in the body of the stole speaks to how all of our lives are braided together. There’s a ripple-like lace at the edges, which speaks to me of how all of our lives can have ripple effects well beyond our immediate experience.

The body of the stole reminds me of smoke from the candle flames, and also contains hearts in it -- an unintentional creation, but completely appropriate to the True Love colourway.

If you like it, I’d ask you to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society or to your local cancer charity.
