I'm finally finished with the second crocheted stole, this one for the bride.
Kristy may not even use it, but I thought it would be better to be safe than sorry. If the weather turns nasty, or the evening grows chilly, her dress may not be warm enough. Hopefully with the stole she won't have to dig out an all weather jacket from her camping gear!
Speaking of the wedding dress, it had a close encounter of the cosmetic kind, and needed a quick bath in cool water. We only noticed the smudge because we had taken the dress out of the bag to compare the white yarn with the white dress. Not all "whites" are the same white. Despite what the pictures are trying to tell you, the dress and the stole are pretty much the same white. The photo of the stole was taken outside in the shadows and I just can't get the color to look right.
