Another completed project!!!

A few weeks ago, I went to a fiber store in another town. The kind I could just spend hours in. The kind that has all the lovely, expensive yarns and wools and silks. The kind where you walk around in a daze, touching, and ooo-ing and aah-ing.

I picked up a hank of Rayon Boucle' by Fiesta. I put it down again, saying to myself, "There is no way I am paying that!"

I picked it up.

I put it down.

Suffice to say, I did that multiple times. Finally, I walked out. So overwhelmed by all the possibilities that I bought nothing!

But that beautiful sapphire skein of rayon haunted me the rest of the afternoon. And thus I begged my hubby to swing back by the shop before we left town!

Here is what I made. Photos do not do it justice. Everyone who has seen it is amazed. I can't take credit. It is not a hard pattern, but this fiber is gorgeous! My teenage daughter keeps trying to sneak off with it!

Beautiful! The yarn is gorgeous and shows off well in this shawl pattern.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. As for the soap socks, they are so quick and easy to make you can whip them up in only a few hours.

gosh, that IS beautiful!!!! I admire your creativity and industriousness!

So please tell me that's your daughter modeling it, and not you. BEcause I don't want to have to hate you for being so thin and youthful (um, from the neck down, since we can't see your face) after having SO! Many! Children! LOL. I can say that 'cause I may catch up some day. ;-)

Oh, but not to imply you're not thin and youthful because i know you ARE!

oh, that was me. You know that's me by now, right?

Yep, that is my beautiful daughter. I do not show her lovely face because in our household, we are paranoid about internet security. There are just too many big bad wolves out there in cyberland!

I definately see why you had to get it. And I am that way with my scrapping supplies. I just found a set of embellishments last week I REALLY want but will have to wait till my next order comes in! BTW I just started my blog on Blogspot last week!
