Quack is rejoicing! Why?
I finished Clue 3 of my Secret of the Stole II today! (Daisy is continuing the party inside. It’s bloody cold!)
I decided to add some beads starting at Row 151.
However, I think the beads add a bit to the stole… what say you?
This represents, by the way, 430 metres (470 yards, or one full 50g hank) of Malabrigo laceweight. I wonder how many metres were actually frogged? I’m glad I’m not quite nerdy enough to keep that total – it would just be too depressing.
I guess it was worth all the frogging after all. And guess what? I didn’t make the Friday midnight deadline for the KAL… and (drumroll please) the world did not come crashing to an end! Hmm. I guess I’m just not as important as I had thought…
So, I’m all set up (touch wood) to start Clue 4, perhaps this evening. In the meantime, I started another project yesterday: the Bespoke Jacket by Libby Baker (I don’t have a photo of it…).
I’m actually thinking of trying to go for a Hudson Bay Company Blanket effect, just for a laugh. (Any Canadians reading this blog will no doubt be familiar with the Hudson Bay Blankets and coats). Picture this:
.. with bright (and some neon) stripes!
Or, maybe I could just steal my mother’s HBC blanket (heh!) and make myself this coat.
Great – just what I need, another project. I’d best hold off on that until I finish this…
Off for a lovely brunch with the ladies now. Happy Sunday!
