Way back (all those weeks ago) when I realized that I needed a longer needle for the Hemlock Ring, I started another project to keep my busy while I waited. It was the Harriet Bolero, for Miss Wren. Her birthday is in March, so I wanted to have something done in time to mail to her if I wasn’t going to be able to make it down that way.
I dug around in the stash and came up with two skeins of Fat Cat in this fantastic BRIGHT pink. And as you can see, I’ve made good progress. The body is done, I’m just now picking up stitches for the bands. Then it will be onto the sleeves. The pattern has short sleeves, but I should have enough yarn for at least 1/2 sleeves, if not 3/4 or full. I’m going to make them as long as I can.
I’ve been keeping an eye on Old Navy as their new spring fashions come in. I’d like to get a nice little spring dress to go with this.
