I was using yarn scraps to practice because I wanted to experiment a little before changing to the pricey yarn I had just bought.
This week, I finally carved out a little time to begin working with the “good yarn”.
It’s from Debbie Bliss, and it’s called “Cashmerino”. Talk about soft! And the colors are gorgeous. 🙂
I‘ll be making about 50 flowers in all combinations of these colors.
In the end, I’ll sew the flowers together to make a shawl. The thought of how pretty it could be makes me giddy, I tell ya!
So far, I have 10 flowers complete. It’s fairly easy to make 1 or 2 per day – usually after dinner, when I sit down with Sir Beads to watch a TV program.
I won’t show the new flowers yet . . .
Oh, what am I saying? I hate it when somebody leaves me in suspense!
How about if I show one of them?!? 😉
To be continued in the coming weeks . . . .
