I have one less Work In Progress now. I finished my niece’s birthday present!
I made the coin purse and the kerchief with Caron Spa, a light weight (3) acrylic and bamboo blend with a wonderfully silky texture. (I really want to make myself a little scarf or lacy sweater with this yarn!) The colors are Greensleeves (dark) and Green Sheen (light). I used approximately one third to one half a skein of Greensleeves and maybe a quarter skein of Green Sheen total for these two projects, so even with adding extra rows to enlarge the kerchief, this didn’t take a lot of yarn.
My niece liked the present, though I think one of my other sister’s won the “Best Present” award with the Strawberry Shortcake Picnic in the Petals play set.
But that’s okay–the coin purse can double as a carrying case for the play set!
