I do not know about you, but those "prove you are not a robot" requests are difficult to decipher! I have just about given up on making any attempts at leaving a comment on those blog that have the "no-robot" request. And if I feel compelled to write something, I'm out after the first strike! Honestly, I do not need more challenges in my life! ;o)
I understand that SPAM is on the rise, but I have dealt with this by programming my blog to request "comment approval" for comments made on posts greater than 10 (ten) days. Of course, my blog no longer accept anonymous posters and that, in itself, cut back the SPAM tremendously!
Onward to the fun stuff. I've been working on this little, well not really, wool project! It took me quite some time to complete it!
The pattern is called Two Prim Snowmen by Jan Speed from A Piece of Work.
I love how it turned out!
I did have an issue with the wool stretching/warping from the hand work, making the top un-even. I was advised that most people will just use a bigger back piece for the underneath and cut accordingly. That just did not do it for me!
I sat on the problem for a bit until memories of my knitting days came to mind. To re-shape the top to it's proper size, I blocked it, just like I would my sweaters! Worked like a charm!
I just love the patterns from A Piece of Work and will be carrying many of their designs at Fibre Junction.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Cheers!
