Notes

12-02-2015

I’m scheduling this for 2016 -- Start on December 31, 2015 and blog about it for the balance of 2016. The yarn’s “aged” long enough. Time to get this made.

12-19-2015

And I restarted before I intended to -- now up to Row 34.

12-29-2015

Up to row 44. Discovered I’d dropped a stitch in the first leaf, leaving a really big hole. Thought I’d have to rip back to the life line, but managed to do a repair. It’s not great, but I managed to do it.

Then, had to do a second repair just before I finished for the evening when I dropped a K3tog stitch right off the needle. (Husband said it was time to go bed when that happened.) This one, caught earlier and with fewer rows to fix, looks better.

Need to put my smallest silver crochet hook in the project bag for these situations as it will make life easier. The HiyaHiya I’m using for beading is too fine. Also need to add lifeline after row 46. Add lifelines at the end of motifs.
