***Somehow this did not get posted on Wednesday like it should have...posting it now***
...I just posted my recap and it lists all of my WIPs and UFOs, so I'm not repeating them in this post.
Instead, how about a couple of completed objects? I listed them on the recap, but I haven't posted any pictures yet.
I finished hat #4 for Halos of Hope. I will drop if off at Purlescence Yarns for delivery. This is Lacy Blue Hat [Ravelry] (it's a little more blue IRL).
Pattern: Lace-Edged Women's Hat by Julie Hentz;
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft in blue;
For Halos of Hope
Here is the second class project for the "Playing with Pcik Up Sticks" class (Deborah Jarchow) I took at Stitches West ETC.
and a closer look:
Started 2/24/14; Finished 3/2/14;
Yarn: Cascade Heritage Silk in dark purple and purple
Warp: Length 80 inches, 10 dpi, 68 ends
Weft: 10 ppi
Finished: 48" long x 6" wide (did not use all of the warp length)
If I had it to do over, I would have made the weave a bit tighter. Even though I was close to the desired 10ppi, I would have been happier if it was closer to 8 ppi. It just feels a little loose to me.
I have started another stealth project that can't yet reveal, but it's coming along nicely.
