I missed last week and don't have too much more this week....but I will forge ahead! The 2nd Hermione's sock is coming along and I am on round 48 of 72 of the leg.........
Remember my Easter mini quilts I was making for my family and me? Well, Easter has come and gone and they are not done....surprise, surprise but I did get some work done on them.....how in the world did I think these were going to be simple?
They're enjoyable to work on but taking me way longer than I expected...per usual! I still have a chicken to embroider, hexies are made but need to be sewn on, a banner and buttons to hang it from and then the backing, the quilting and the binding! Maybe they'll get them next Easter! LOL!
My Hotel of Bees shawl/CAL doesn't even look like I worked on it but I did....I got this part done and then counted the bee 'wings' and there were only 22 and there was supposed to be 23 and counting is important in this project so..........as you can see that required almost completely starting over which I did so now there are 23 and I can move on. Someone in the CAL said this was the most difficult part of the shawl.....it might have been the designer. So, I have mastered the wings and now I'm on to the next section....learning as I go but very satisfying to work on. I think mine is going to be quite small even though I am using the recommended yarn and hook size but I have tight tension in crochet and knitting so it might end up a shawlette or a scarf but that's okay.
I also picked up the book which inspired the design and although it is a Pulitzer Prize Winner it started off very interesting and is proving to be a very good book!
It's really fun to read the book and work on the shawl in a CAL with others. Have a great week everyone!
