CUBA! For two weeks, too. :)
And since I'm me, I'm making things hard for myself by trying to make up a vacation wardrobe for this trip.
The medallion is about 18" across, which is what the pattern calls for (after blocking, I believe). Considering that this pattern is one-sized and a Japanese pattern, I know I need to make this bigger. I'm pretty sure I'll get that once this is blocked. Look at the pattern picture above - you can see how much open the lace is - and using a wool, this should open up nicely.
I'm using Nice & Knit Fingering in the Lobster Pot colourway. The pictures above don't show the colour well, mostly because I was too eager to show you guys so took them in my sewing room with the blinding fluorescent light on. It's gorgeous though, a lovely tonal reddish-orange - you can sort of see the tonal varigation in the first pic.
Considering that I started this 4 days ago, I should be able to get this done before the 22nd, right? Right??!
It's been a good crafty weekend! I think I needed this, I've been in the dumps lately and it was good to get some creative time in. How was your weekend? Did you get any craft-time in?
