As I was making the border for this mini-afghan I couldn't get Barry Manilow's Copacabana song out of my head! You know the one...."her name was Lola... she was a showgirl, with yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there"... and I thought Lola was a rather fitting name for this mini blanket. I'd like to think Lola the showgirl would very much love to own this snazzy little number - and with a "dress cut down to there" it would help keep things from getting too chilly whilst doing the merangue...
So as you can see, Lola is now covering the stash box as originally intended. Apparently all that was needed was a little light steaming with the iron and a frilly edge and she now hangs beautifully over the box.
Thank you as always for your enthusiasm regarding my crochet goings on. It is always lovely to hear from you. My husband is busy painting the other two Ercol chairs for the dining room, so my next project will be making two new seat pads.
Hope life is rosy in your part of the world x
**The border is made using the pattern from Nicki Trench's Cute and Easy Crochet book. **
I used a 4.5mm hook and it suited the edging very well, making it "lacey" in appearance.
