I'm terrible...I have no shame....I can't resist...I have to show you...even before she is ready to make her debut & beauty & action shots....it's a character flaw.
Here she is all pinned out and blocking...25" x 76" (fringe not included). Tacky tacky tacky blocking shot. At least the carpet is clean. Colors are of course more subdued due to poor lighting conditions....
Here is a bad shot of the Lady's crotchety edging. I like to do this as a finishing touch on most projects. Quick, easy, just be sure to make the 3stitch corner turns.
Here's a closer shot of the knotted fringe. This is beautiful in the SWS..the soy really brings a sheen and structure to the strands (IMHO of course). Be warned. Cutting, looping through, and knotting ate up over 2 hours straight...sitting on the floor for me. But..it was 2 hours of watching Kirsten Dunst in the new Marie Antionette DVD with DD. DD has struggled in history..finding it...BORING...(I don't get that because it's always been a fav subject...but that's life). She was entranced by the movie and we had lots of discussion during and after about the causes of the French Revolution, court roles, heritage/lineage relationships and political marriages between countries for alliances....history stuff...and she was interested. She's quite the reader so any suggestions for historically correct books and movies that would appeal to a 15y/o horsecrazy tomgirl would be much appreciated. I enjoyed the modern spin on the movie as well as the lovely cinematography, costumes, etc..myself! I digress. Back to the Lady's fringe.
Pearl says..Harrumph...the drawer you keep the blocking pins in is infinately more impressive than that piece of string on the floor.
Have a great knitting day!
