Those of you in more northern places will laugh at that statement, but it did get down in the 30’s today which is cold for us southern Texans. It was a bit cool but beautiful. We went out to see our house (which we’re in the process of building) and went out to eat. Being outside a bit gave me the opportunity to wear my calmer hat. So, I thought I’d share a picture. It was almost on it’s way to the frog pond but I think it’s going to be a keeper. What do you think?
I also finished the front of the ribby shell. I made it a v-neck and think the straps will be just the right width. The true test will be when I finish the back and put that puppy on. I also need to decide on a method for cleaning up the edges. For my boatneck shell, I picked up stitches, but it had some issues around the neckline. Of course, I was also picking them up incorrectly, so maybe if I pick them up in the right way, it will turn out okay. I’ve also considered crocheting the edges. Any wisdom you can impart would be helpful. Oh, and here’s a picture. Sorry, it’s not the best pic, I used the last bit of daylight here in Houston and (silly me) took the picture against our dark table, which didn’t help matters.
