So I finished my One Skein project for the challenge/fashion show at my mom's store next weekend. (Only five more days until I fly out to see her, yay!)
I had initially started on this planning to make it a wrist cuff using this pattern by Creativeyarn.
My flowers came out a little too big to fit the pattern though and I wanted to use up more of the awesome yarn.
So then I thought I would make enough flowers to attach together to make a bandanna, but that idea didn't really pan out.
I decided to stick with my three blossoms and turn it into a headband instead, though looking at the finished product, I actually think it would make a better choker, so...I think that's what it will get entered as in the "fashion show" at the yarn store.
Here's a not so great shot of the finished product:
And here's a little bit better shot that gives you a close-up of the flowers and a better look at the colors in the awesome yarn my mom sent me.
You still can't quite get the full effect though. Hopefully after my trip I'll have a shot of me wearing it for you.
The yarn, by the way, was a really pretty blue/purple/green/black variegated skein in Poems by Wisdom yarns. I really dug it.
That's all I've got for now. Next up are my first stabs at amigurumi. Though I do have one potential project to try before then if I can get off my lazy bum and do it. More on that laters.
Take care all and have a super wonderful Valentine's Day!
