Cutting the waste cast on rows and picking up 185 stitches wasn't as hard as I thought.
I went all the way to Africa, and the only thing I bought for myself was this Gemsbok!
He's great for modeling, listening to me ramble, and staring at me.
Then there were TWO!
I completed the second border (right side) and enjoyed watching those motifs appear again.
Here's a close up of my favorites... I like diamond shapes and think my tension might be getting better.
After finishing Border #1, I rewarded myself by buying the Bee Stole!
I have 2 skeins of the dark red Fino that I've been saving for something special. But I also like the Zephyr in chanel (fushia). I like the vertical lines of the stole. Not starting yet!
Now I'm off to work on Alpine for a while before starting the Unst's edging. Remember? Edging is like sleeves... not fun, easy to put off, but if you don't complete it, you can't wear it! :) and I can't start anything else. Now maybe I'll reward myself for finishing Border#2... there's another pattern I want!
