Christmas Finished Object

Hello everyone. Erin here...I'm actually posting for the second time in a week. Yes, I'll give you a minute to get over the shock of it.

I know, I know...this is late. REALLY late. However, I wanted to post pictures of a feather and fan stole that I made as a Christmas present for my mother. I didn't finish it by Christmas, so I put it under the Christmas tree in a box but still on the needles. I was happy she at least got to open a gift on Christmas and that I could finally knit on it in front of her. Mom kept joking with me that I would still be knitting on it the next time she came to visit. However, I did finish it before she left.

With this project I really learned my lesson about buying enough yarn for a project. The problem was that I bought the yarn with another project in mind. Anyway, I bought more yarn that turned out to be much lighter in color and spent too much money by the end, but Mom's worth it. I hope she gets some use out of this stole.

Yarn: Artyarns Ultramerino 6 in colorway 123
Size: 2' wide by 7' long

By the way, the extra yarn that was too light became a pair of socks for me. I love the socks, but have not photographed them. Will post pics of the socks in about 2 months!!

Thanks to Tamami for trying to host knit night this past Friday. It didn't work out as well as we had hoped, but I had a great time. Tamami gave me some very yummy yarn for my birthday. I can't wait to use it!

Hopefully next knit night we can do the planned charity knitting.
