You can’t really see the beads in this picture, so you’ll have to believe me when I say that they are there!
Yarn: Abstract Cat Merino – colour: Dragonfly
Modifications: Beads instead of nupps, didn’t complete the final lace chart as I ran out of yarn.
Verdict: The bind-off isn’t very stretchy so the points aren’t very pointy. It’s still nice, but I am thinking about pulling back the cast off and the last row and re-casting off to make it more stretchy.
Nerd Wars has started again, and I’m playing on Team Hellmouth this tournament. That means I’m doing another rewatch of Buffy, but it’s good fun in any case! The challenges this round are challenging, but I like them so far.
I’ve submitted to two challenges, so here are my two FOs for your perusal.
|Pattern: Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap |
Yarn: Leftover sock yarn and some 3ply dreamtime from Patons.
Modifications:Instead of a crochet chain or i-cord, I have used a twisted cable for the ties under the chin.
Verdict:So cute! I love it!
Pattern: Crochet net soap saver and body scrubber
Yarn: Craft cotton from Boyes.
Modifications: Used a larger hook than called for. Again used a twisted cable rather than a crochet chain for the ties.
Verdict: It looks good! Hubby is yet to use it, but he seems as pleased as one can be with a soap saver!
