Lace Along II

I just can't stay away from lace. I quasi-designed a baptismal stole using the alphabet in Debbie Bliss' The Baby Knits Book. The bulk of the stole is his name, but there was room for a baptismal symbol on the "John" side to make it the same length as the "Francis" side. For ease in quasi-designing I chose a christogram, which combines the letters chi and rho (or X and P from the Debbie Bliss book -- I'm lazy).

I'm knitting each side from the bottom up and grafting them together. I'm about a third finished with the first half. Given the way the lace pattern makes the entire piece slant, I think there will need to be some serious blocking when this is done.
