|Look at that thing. It's gorgeous!|
This morning I even managed to pick up the stitches from the sides and get everything back onto three needles.
It's possible that it's relatively smooth sailing from here on. *knock on wood*
What else did I do? Glad you asked. I think I figured out how to do Tunisian crochet on a double-pointed hook. My first swatch attempt was an unmitigated disaster, but this time around things worked better. I need to do another swatch on a smaller hook though. The gauge is off.
|When I frogged this it became clear that the blue and the white are two entirely independent layers. Really odd to rip out the white and be left with a husk of blue.|
And here's the shocking development: I DID SOME WEAVING THIS WEEKEND.

|Still not sure whether using alpaca for a pattern that calls for chenille will work.|
|Can you see the pattern? I can only see it from certain angles. I think my yarn colors don't contrast enough.|
|But at least I feel like I look like a weaver now, what with my new outrageous Old Lady Readers.|
I much preferred the Irish whiskey one over the Guinness one. Another shocking development!
