Escape From Sleeve Island
In any event, thanks to the wonder that is American Idol, I was able to crank out the final sleeve cap last night. I present: finished Frimas pieces!
SO. What next? Well, I recently bought a rockin' dress [very much like this one, though the one I bought is now sold out] to wear to a wedding in the OC in April. It's strapless, and I have no idea what the weather will be like there. But I'd say it's a good bet my shoulders could use some cover. So, I'd like to make a lacy stole. Rectangular. [I don't like to wear triangles.] I've thought about ordering this kit from Fiddlesticks, but I'm just not sure. [Part of the hesitance comes from the fact that I want to have something to work on during 7 hours total of train travel this weekend.] Anyone made it? Suggestions for other [beginner! I've never done lace] stole patterns are much appreciated.
In other news:
Now I just have to decide how to use the yarn. I'm not really a beret and cravat type of girl. But I bet it would make a fantastic hat from another pattern.
Also: Caryn had asked about sizing on the Rebecca wrap cardi. It looks like the small is 32/34 and the large is 36/38, with them having a total chest measurement of 104cm and 115cm, respectively.
Confidential to Secret Pal: Thanks for your e-mail! I really appreciate it.Posted by Ann at February 23, 2005 09:57 AM
