So, back home, I did this:
What do you think? I just used white thread as a try. If the stole is of a stronger fabric, I can possibly use buttons so that it can be a shrug when needed; but the mohair lace seems not strong enough.
I didn't start any new project, not even socks. Still waiting for the sock muse to come. Instead, I have plans to attack my UFOs. My first target is the blue afghan. If I could finish Kiri in 2 weeks, there is no way I can't finish the remaining 40% of the afghan ... which means just 12 squares. So, over the weekend, I worked solely on it and this was what I got yesterday:
Now, I am into the 5th square. Just keep this up and I would finish this afghan soon! Yay! And the next target would be Bomber.
Just want to show you the RAOKs I received:
On the left is an origami bird and a card from Maryellen ... she made the bird herself ... lovely, isn't it? Maryellen is a crafty lady. I got this from her back in June but didn't get to take picture until yesterday. Then on the right are gifts from Caitlyn. The Jo Sharp Kid Mohair is beautiful ... will look for a good pattern for them. The photo album ... I'm going to make a scrapbook album with our photos for my parents. Thanks to both ladies!
