Stole for Ordinary Time

We've been fortunate to have been on three trips lately, including two trips involving visiting family in other states.  I'm finally getting back to some blogging, and I'm doing this instead of watching the Vikings/Packer game.  Here is a stole I finished in July for our pastor's 5th anniversary of being at our church. More pictures of this stole and others are posted  HERE.  I'm trying to get Blogger to cooperate and post the full length picture, but so far that isn't working.

  2. I'm not sure I know what a stole is but remindful of what my mom called wall hangings. She made many for the Methodist Church near SunRay in St. Paul. When she passed on and I was discussing funeral arrangements with the new pastor there, she mentioned the beautiful hangings that were available. And I blurted out..."my mom made those."

  4. Stoles are what pastors and priests in some denominations wear around their necks. It signifies a yoke. There are various colors that are used depending on the season of the church year, and most often, other cloth is used on the altar or pulpit using the same color. Ordinary Time sounds "ordinary." But it means the season of Trinity, or mainly summer, and the weeks are counted off, hence, they are named by "ordinals."

  5. I've gotten several questions about my pattern for the stole itself. I use a pattern given to me by a friend. It is shaped around the neckline. I've also seen a pattern that is straight, with the seam behind the neckline being straight, so that the two sides form a V.
