A few years ago I was shocked to learn that my grandmother had a fox stole. My grandfather was a diplomat for Argentina and they were always at formal parties - I say that because nearly all of the pictures I can remember of my grandparents are of them at these super fancy parties in tuxedos festooned with ribbons and medals, ball gowns, jewels and fancy head pieces.
Anyhoo - being a former vegan (I did come back to the dark side - how could I stay away when I live with the devil himself?) I was freaked out that she owned a fur, let alone one with a head and legs on it. That little guy had once run around the forest! I always thought my grandmother was ultra glamorous and although there was some old world glamour to the stole I also thought it was creepy and wrong. So why not crochet a fox stole?? Hmmm...I've been thinking about it for awhile. I was even telling someone about the idea at work the other day.
Fast forward to a few minutes ago while perusing my blogroll and coming across this via Holly at decor8...
Isn't that the coolest thing ever?? I love the color too. I'm far too "color-within-the-lines" to have even thought of making it in violet but that makes it all the more super. She has many different colors and a longer version. Head over there quick before she sells out! I'm sorry if you wanted this one - it's mine :) I'm not going to wait until I get around to making one for myself.
