sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Online Craft Club Show and Tell #27

This week, there were a few stitches on a complicated cross-stitch, and several rows on the log cabin blanket, and then there was this:

Neither of these pictures adequately portrays the wonderfulness of color in this yarn, and that is why you get two. I am making a sweater for myself, and I have started by casting on the exact number of stitches I need to go around my hips at the point that is most flattering for a shirt to end on me. And by exact number, I mean not one more than necessary. And I am decreasing (4 stitches every 10th row) to the exact number of stitches plus one inch that it takes to go around my ribcage just under my breasts. I am calling this sweater The Skimmer, and when you see it, you will totally understand why. And you will also want one. Go ahead and get started, using the directions above, LOL! Once you get it as long as you want to the underarm, stop and wait for me.

Here’s how to play:

Take a picture of your current project, whatever that happens to be. Or maybe one you recently finished. Or the materials for the one you are about to start. Let’s say materials for a project in whatever state it happens to be in at the time you snap it. On Friday, post the picture and tell us about your project. What you did, or what you are going to do. How much you are enjoying it, or hating it. You know–show and tell.

Just copy & paste the code below the graphic and get crafty with me!
