Mindy's Stole - Part I'm-Getting-Close-To-Being-Done

Yesterday I finished writing the charts for the body of the stole and I got about 40 rows knitted on it! As of right now, this minute, the picture you're looking at above, I have 64 more rows to go before I start the second edging! I can see the light at the end of the pink alpaca tunnel now and that makes me happy. (I imagine this makes Mindy happy too since she's still waiting for her Christmas present.) This weekend I will be alternately knitting on the stole and writing directions for the pattern. Last time I blogged the stole, I mentioned a resemblance to Swiss Cheese and someone left a comment suggesting champagne bubbles. Well, I got to thinking and of course not everyone is going to want to knit this in cherry blossom pink, so I thought about other colors that could work for this stole. White could be either cherry blossoms or snow. A pale grey or blue could be raindrops. Of course an ivory or gold could be champagne (that would be pretty for a wedding, I'm thinking). There are really a number of things that the holes on the stole (hey, it rhymes!) can represent if its worked in different colors. Leave your favorite in the comments if you want to!
Here's some canine eye candy for your Friday! Silly puppy fell asleep last night on Mickael's sandals and the towel we wipe his feet on when he comes in from outside. Just look at that sweet smile. Have a great weekend!

If you used a pale yellow, you could have swiss cheese!

The stole is gorgeous and I can't wait to see it in person. It will be fun to get a gift after Christmas, so don't sweat it!

Finn is precious! He SO reminds me of Stephen with that pose and smile while he's sleeping! Mindy

Finn is adorable! Our Golden Retriever is still hanging in there at 14 1/2 years old. Beautiful shawl!

How about "Tiny Bubbles?"

Finn is so sweet! We had a golden for 15 years and she was the best doggie. :)

Cherry blossom, the colour is just right, or rose champagne :-)

I can't wait to see it properly.

Oww Finn, what a cutey! I take it he doesn't chew shoes...?

Whatever name you choose for the stole I am sure will be perfect! Finn is absolutely handsome! It is amazing how quick a puppy grows!
