Check me out – two posts in two days ….. I’m on a roll! I am beginning to suspect that my recent blog slump can be attributed to DBK. Dead Boring Knitting.
Does it appear I am flying through this project? Last night I was thinking the same thing myself and thrilling with the thought. I mean, this thing has 10 sections and I am finished with 5. My mathematical acumen tells me I am halfway through already. But NO! No sooner had I smiled at the prospect of having this complete in record time, it occurred to me that the sections get bigger the further out I go. Seaming this last section took about 90 minutes.
Here is Mr. Poe inspecting the seaming job.
You’re killing me!!! It looks FANTASTIC! I’m so jealous!
It looks great and seaming as you go seems like a very smart way to do it.
It’s really gorgeous, Ann! What are we lookin’ at in the grand scheme of things — a corner, a side, a middle?
It is so pretty! It is making me desperately want to learn to crochet! :)
Looks great! (But… um… I’m going to be annoying and point out the lack of piggies again. ;) )
I second Mr. Poe!
What do you mean score in the blogging department? I say it pales compared to your scoring in the Babette department, it is amazing and you are so right about the seaming in parallel to the crocheting!
I’ve been lurking around your blog for a while, but Babette has brought me out of the shadows! It’s encouraging me to finish my current crochet project and move on to the next one. Seam-as-you-go is such a good idea – I think I’ll try that for my next WIP. Three oinks for you!
Excellent! Seaming as you go is so… grown-up!
Have you seen what Maryse passed up at the flea market?
Wow, your seaming job is beautiful!!! How are you seaming them? Is it just a whip stich thru the back loops?
I have been a knitter for the last few years. After seeing your Babette and Cara’s Babette. I am hooking again.
Sure all these new posts and I’m missing them! It’s looking mighty good! You have a great eye for color too.
