I can view the finish line on this great project. Tina & kids came for a visit, and Tina really loved this project, while Alex really took to the first project, dragging it around. I bought more yarn to use in the project--some funky ones that lend a whimsical look to the throw. My teacher for this project used eyelet lace, but the Tahiki Poppy yarn gives this look without being heavy handed.
My son's wedding is this Friday, so I will be flying to Connecticut on Wednesday. Pretty exciting times! I plan to take my new project--socks--along with me. Wish me well!
