Finished round 8 of Renulek's Spring 2017 doily. Yarnplayer's hand dyed thread size 20 in Sugar Maple. This time gave it a little press with the iron (yes I do own one).
This round looked pretty easy but I had a hard time for some odd reason. First time I had to cut out a mistake on this project (and I don't have a lot of thread as it is!). I had to literally say a little mantra to myself to stop making the same mistake:
Finally got it. Again, why so hard to remember? Odd.
So now I'm ready to start round 9 but this could almost stand on it's own don't you think? If I do run out of thread I can cut down to a row like this that looks good finished. Game plan for not enough thread is a good idea but before I dove in I probably should have listened to that little voice that said, "Well.....doesn't look good kid!"
I have less than 100 yards left for this project. I am going to have to either quit early, or use a complimentary color on the remaining rounds. Bummer!!
Maybe there is someone out there with a skein (or 2) of this that would like to trade for some of my hand dyed thread that I have single skeins of. Or wouldn't mind selling it to me. Any takers?? (Long shot but gotta try.) I have some nice stuff. Will have to tackle that in another post though since no pics of those yet.
