My counter is deceptive. It tells me I have more time than I actually have. Obviously I need to get it to the bride before the actual day, and with enough time in case she absolutely hates it and needs to find an alterntaive. I really hope she doesn't hate it.
So, I've made some progress. Getting the hang of the lace weight yarn - it's just so insubstantial in your hands, nothing at all to hold on to!
The first task is making the body, then I move on to the complicated edging. The body needs to be 20-21 inches deep.
|Saturday morning, after one night's work.|
|Sunday - measuring about 10 inches.|
|I'm loving the way the yarn is working up. The slight variation in the yarn is gorgeous.|
|Monday, I forgot to measure.|
|And today, last night measuring just over 12 inches, and not counting this morning's work on the train. Hook included for scale.|
I CAN DO IT!
On a different note, I've been super tired and quite stressed these last few weeks. Yesterday was a shocker, I hardly had time to think, I don't even know how I was functioning. But I got two lovely surprises when I needed it most. One lovely person bought me a donut (I freaking love donuts), and another bought me a pineapple freddo Hahaha freddo has a wiki page!!. Just when I needed it, a little ray of sunshine. I have such lovely friends <3
|Who freaking knew they made pineapple Freddos? GENIUS!|
