I don't know the yardage because I knit from the cone.
Finished Measurements: Approximately 38" wide x 80" long.
I completed 19 tiers instead of 23 and I think it was a good thing. It would have been way too long if I had gone even up to 21 tiers.
All in all I am very pleased with the final result. The stole gets softer and softer the more it is handled. When I first started knitting with the linen I was worried I might have made the wrong yarn choice. In the end I love the way it looks and feels.
I did my spinning for the Tour de Fleece this morning while I was watching the first real stage of the race. That gave me time to work on the July socks for the Sockamania club this afternoon while we were at my in-laws doing laundry. I finished the heel on the first sock and I knit it according to the way it is written in the pattern. I am glad that I ripped out the first sock and changed to the smaller needles. They fit my foot nicely. The heel looks great and now it's onto the cuff.
