But let me regress a bit. Earlier I told you about my new design that I have been working on.
It's pretty. I like it. But it had some problems that I had to work out first. Like it was a bit floppy. And the spaces between flowers were a bit too large for what I was going for. And then there was the problem with joining the flowers. Every time I joined the points of the flowers, which should curl under a bit to create a puff, they actually splayed out. This bothered me. A lot.
So...back to the drawing board. Well, not really. Just about seven different scribbled pages of pattern trials using the same basic pattern I had initially designed.
And I think I finally have it. Nice, compact, puffy flowers, form one soft, snuggly blankie! Go, Sue! Go, Sue!
I am VERY happy with the way they join, although it is very fiddly, but oh, so neat and tidy. See...
I FINALLY figured out how to get the ends to stay puffy when joining-as-you-go--many, many trials, I tell ya! And I love that the flowers look as incredible from the back as the front.
AND I am thrilled that I have four rows complete.
AND I love that it is made of soft WASHABLE wool.
8 more rows...just keep yarning, just keep yarning. You know, I just can't stop yarning! (LOL! Get it?)
Finally, I really need a name for this one. Please comment here or on my Facebook page and give me some feedback. I have completely drawn a blank on this one.
Happy, happy hooking and a hug!
