|That's all I had left with about three more inches to go!|
Initially, I was going to work on color working since I had not done it... and running out of yarn forced me to learn. When my spindle arrived I was going to use that as my challenge but I am such a spastic monkey when it comes to working with it that I haven't done anything that I would consider an accomplishment yet. I'm still learning and I practice with it several times a week when my shoulder and neck cooperate.
Anywho, here is my entry (even though obviously I can't win my own contest no matter how badly I want a Crafter's Tool Butler). This photo is unblocked and as soon as it's dry, I promise to get a few really good shots to share. The color change wasn't as scary as I thought it was going to be - partly because it was during the decreasing and changing from circulars to dpns so my mind was in overdrive at that point. I think it's a pretty clean transition and nothing went wonky on me... and I'm proud to say that it doesn't look like a bad attempt at a watermelon homage either. All in all, I'm pretty tickled with the results. My favorite parts are the pompom and the buttons... you'll see, once it's dry.
|Not bad for a "straight off the needles" shot. Better ones post blocking are forthcoming, I promise.|
