:o) Two days in a row this week! How did I manage that??? It's early and I had a rush of things first thing and got them done so I have a small break. I wanted to post the progress I made on the 1st bookmark for Gail. All I have left is the arms and I kind of don't like the neck. I was thinking last night of how I could make some kind of a collar but I may just do a scarf. I don't know...I'll have to think on it some more. (Edited to add: I think I might take Debi's suggestion for a bow tie! Thanks Debi!!)
Bev, of One Yarn or Another just finished a tunisian jacket that is simply gorgeous! I also saw a tunisian pattern somewhere in blogland recently and it was kind of mind boggling to me to read. But I guess it's like any other pattern, you have to take it step by step, line by line and read real carefully. Please excuse the blurry pic...I was trying to get it this morning before I walked out the door, so I was in a hurry.
Edited to add: Upon closer inspection of my pic I see where I messed up the colors also between the shocking pink and rose! lol and I wanted the two outside to be equal with a smaller panel in the middle. I thought I counted right but apparently somehow I screwed up, and didn't realize it until I had a few rows on it. Can you see how I have more peach than shocking pink? It's not a lot of extra stitches, only one or two, but it's just enough that you can see it. Oh well. I'm thinking I will get it to a managable square for an afghan for later on down the road. I am not frogging this one. It will make for an interesting panel/piece. I was actually trying to use up some leftover yarn from other projects.
I told Bev yesterday in a comment that she is the Tunisian Queen! I applaud her loudly for her tunisian work. I don't think I can do a whole vest like she did. I know it has to be a warm garment too. The thickness of the tunisian stitch is like a double layer of thermal underwear. :o) I so wish I could have the patience and experience to make a coat out of this stitch. No way is that ever going to happen!
Well it's that time. Duty calls! I'm hoping all of us who are suffering the summer swelter will get some respite. All eyes in the southeast are on Emily, the tropical storm in the Caribbean. Last night they were saying that it might just skirt our (GA) coast and head toward NC. I would at least like some rain out of you Emily!! No more, no less please. :o) (Like she's going to listen to me huh??? lol) Cya soon!
