Wrap it up!

Or wrap me up...IT'S COLD HERE!!!!!! I asked for it. I got it. Today was about 50 degrees. This week our temps varied by 40 degrees. Oh well, I am ready for fall aaaaaaand.........
I do have this to throw on.....


I finally finished the re-knit of my stole. I am calling it the Weekender Wrap. I'm thinking I could easily wear this out to dinner and church on the weekends. I think it would look great over a fine-gauge sweater and slacks or a blouse and jeans.

Woo
and
Hoo!
I used my new blocking wires to block it out, and wow, did that make a difference! It was so much easier to get straight lines! If you don't have them, run like the wind to your computer and order yourself some! They will save you MEGA TIME!!!! (and sanity hehe)

Not much other news here, so I will leave you with Brodie begging for a belly scratch. He's such a dork.
:)
Oh, and wish me luck. Tomorrow for my committee we are making between 1500-1600 apple pies. Yeah, really. That many. Yikes.

Your stole is gorgeous Lisa! It will go with everything :)

Funny, I've been seriously thinking about blocking wires too. Sounds like I may have to start looking around :)

Good thing it's finally chilly enough to wear that nice stole. Very nice.

Isn't it amazing how much easier it is with blocking wires? Nice straight edges without having to measure a million times, pin, re pin, and re re pin.

Your stole is beautiful! I'm so glad that the blocking wires worked out for you. Aren't they time savers?

My mother told me to tell you that Quincy wants Brodie to come over for a playdate. I say that Brodie's Hustler shot is utterly adorable. :-)

The wrap turned out lovely! Blocking wires are on my list to buy; the more I read about them, the more I know they'd be good to have.

So why did you have to help make that many pies???

The stole is simply lovely!

I'm glad Fall has arrived because I was finally able to pull out my handknit socks.

That's a lot of pies... sure hope you had lots of helpers!
