Waaaaaay back in January (which seems like ages ago at this point) I blogged about making a fingering weight crochet stole in a week to wear to a friend's wedding. Well, I finished and it was a success. Yay!

*If you're interested in the back story you can read the blogs: Can I Finish in a Week?, So Far, So Slow, Success!

Unfortunately I never did get a photo of myself wearing the stole at the wedding. I opted not to bring my camera with me because whenever I do I end up getting distracted by taking photos and not participating in the fun as much. And I really wanted to have fun. (Come on, it was a wedding, you're supposed to have fun!)

I wore the shawl (until I got too hot from dancing) and it received many compliments. If you're interested in making a January Wedding stole for yourself you can get the free crochet stole pattern over on About.com Crochet.

The lace pattern of January Wedding took me a few rows to get used to, unlike the Easy Trellis Lace Crocheted Stole which basically crochets itself. (That one is way easier to make than it is to say. What was I thinking on the name? Geez!) I think the side cluster of flowers (Easy Crochet Flower) made a nice touch. I sewed small shell buttons to the center for added sparkle. My favorite part? The stole can get paired with jeans and a tee or a dress/skirt and looks stunning either way. Score!

Well, antique is defined as 100 years +. Classic is defined as 25+. So although it may be the "antique" fair, it sounds like not everything there is antique, including you!

The antique fair in Ogden always has examples of the toys I played with. I'm not 100...yet.

Oh, I do have a range in my kitchen, but it is more classic than antique. It was probably one of the models made in the 1950s. So it's not 100 years old yet.

I'm always happy when I can make someone laugh.

Cheryl, don't you have an antique range in your kitchen?
Comment by cherylbwaters on June 1, 2011 at 3:41pm
At least you had a range. I've never been able to carry a tune in a bucket.

Very nice, and I adore the pin. I used to have quite the range, about 2 octaves from G to G. Not anymore. :(

That really did turn out beautiful. And the treble clef shawl pin is a beautiful one.
