Quick FFFO Post

Just a quick post today to show you my final post-blocked Ostrich Plumes Stole by Anne Hanson of KnitSpot in my FF Laceweight Merino in Sunny Peach. It's an FFFO (that's my new shorthand for Fearless Fibers Finished Objects . . . adopt at will :).

The photos aren't great, but they're good enough to give you a sense of the finished project. I really love it!

My decision to give it to my mortgage banker as a Thank You gift is now complete. I haven't done it yet, but I will. She called me yesterday just to see how the new house is going and also to ask me some yarn questions (her mother is a knitter and she's thinking of buying her some yarn). Her call gave me the perfect opportunity to casually mention that I was planning on stopping by the bank in a few days to drop off "a little something" for her. Very casual. Breezy even. And so now it will - I hope! - seem a little more natural and won't potentially freak her out. I didn't want her to think I was some crazy lady who was stalking her, bringing her lavish gifts! I think the tone is now set for me to be able to give her my little Thank You gift without frightening her.

That's about all that's new here. I'm trying not to allow Ravelry to distract me too much, but I must say, it is great fun! I could randomly browse people's projects for hours. If you're on Ravelry, feel free to look me up (user name is "fearlessfibers" of course). As mentioned in my last post, the ever-wonderful Cindy (aka Maxfun on Ravelry) was kind enough to set up a "Fans of Fearless Fibers" Group, so you might also swing by and considering joining the chit chat there.

I think I hear some leftover Yakisoba Noodles calling my name from the fridge. Must be going now . . .

The shawl is beautiful with your navy turtleneck. I'm sure that your banker pal will love it! It's great to see you on Ravelry--Ravelry is still a lot of fun after the initial surprise and newness wears off. Jess and Casey are continuing to issue lots of invitations to people still on the waiting list, so the wait isn't nearly as long as might be expected!

The stole is gorgeous! Your mortgage broker is very lucky indeed.

It is so pretty. I am sure that she is going to love it.
