Wondering...Design Journey: Super Speedy Bolero?

If I have time to design a shrug/bolero for myself and make it by Easter, next Sunday the 12th? I'm thinking about what I have in my stash... of course, I never have enough of the "right" yarn in my stash when I want to make something "right now". I might have to make a quick Hobby Lobby run? What do they carry? Patons Grace? The leftover cotton from Chickee's dress? I don't want to mail order something and pay expedited shipping. It would be best to use stash yarn.... I have some Nashua DK Creative Focus Cotton... but only in the coral and turquoise, which might be too bright for me with my black and white dress...

Hmm, do I have time? Should I be working on deadline projects instead? Probably. But, if I make some little cover-up for me by Easter, then I can also wear it at First Communion... tempting.

I'd want something pretty lightweight. Something short/bolero or cropped length. Probably 3/4 sleeve. Maybe something that ties in front or fastens with one button. Something that has just enough ease to wear over my short-sleeved dress. Maybe I should do some sketching and some "spelunking in my stash".
