Another bragging photo or two
Well – that’s a new thing learnt for the day.
So – a photo of the Gown at Queanbeyan Show :
Courtesy of my ever so Portable Panasonic Lumix (My second Lumix due to the coal dust induced death of the first. But I can recommend the Lumix as a Point and Shoot when I don’t feel like being the life support system for a DSLR and whole of lens/flash/battery grip. )
The gown is actually a little creamier in actuality – just looks a little dingy inside the shed. This is a version of the Leisure Arts pattern but with a satin underskirt then edged with more of the 2ply with a mesh involving puff stitches and the shell row.
In hindsight I would have used a lighter weight fabric as the lining. Maybe next time.
Next bragging photo is my new Baby Blanket pattern. This is a yarn eater – this version took up over 1300m of 3ply yarn. I used a cheap (and I remembered why as I was using it) acrylic – Panda’s Big Baby in the 3ply. It is a splitty yarn which is why I am not a fan.
For the benefit of Panda’s feelings – it is a nice yardage and the varigated blue comes in a lovely lot of colours, but it’s just wretchedly splitty.
This is another of my FP edged baby blankets with a loopy edging.
There’s a centre panel made from a chain 3,
Dc loop stitch and also two rows for ribbon. The centre part is time-consuming but it is enough of fiddle to keep your interest. The FPTC alternates with DCs which makes a nice ribby border. Pattern will be available shortly!
Anyway – am about an hour from having to start chasing around – have to get house key, collect entries from the show, come back, go to work, collect all the conference bits and then go to the airport.
Excellent – another hour or so waiting in an airline’s club lounge. Admittedly – at least the bar will be open… though.. I do have to drive when I get to Adelaide….
Also – we know what happens when I try to crochet under the influence.
Catch you later.
