Eye Candy Friday | Stole 2.0.

Oh my, y'all. The seemingly-endless stockinette finally came to an end yesterday morning. After a nice soak and an overnight dry on the floor, it's ready to share. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. the colors pop! (even on a cloudy day)

the drape.

that subtle alpaca halo.

and the size. It blocked to about 86"x23", which gives me options for how to wear it.

I thought I was adding length and width (see all my notes on Ravelry here), but I'm glad it ended up just being length; it doesn't need to be any wider.

I predict it's going to get a lot of wear on our trip!

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!

Simply beautiful! The colors really do pop even more than before blocking. You have great color sense; I never would have thought to put those colors together, but they work wonderfully and I'm sure you'll wear it well (and often)!

Fabulous! The colors are so beautiful (like Bonny, I would not have thought to use them together. I love the little halo effect. It will go so well with everything from jeans to a little black dress. Congratulations on a great finish!!

Just beautiful! And it looks so soft. The colors are some of my favorites, too - I love using them in my garden. Hopefully, we will see some photos of you modeling it on your trip. : ) Happy weekend!
