Here is the finished Watermelon Crescent. I used almost all the handspun I had for this project and used the Jenny's Suprisingly Stretchy Bind-off for the finish. Here are linkies to a tutorial and a video version for those who want to learn this indispensible bind-off technique.
See how pretty...
A decision will have to be made whether I should put a button on it to hold it together or get a shawl pin. Opinions? I've never used a shawl pin so I wonder how annoying it would be with the pointy parts and all.
I'm leaning toward a button, since I have such a nice assortment of handmade, from The Delicion, buttons...
volleyball and boxing were great. Claressa Shields from Flint is kickin some ass! Which gives us hope for the sport of boxing in the Olympics...the men's judges sucked! There were so many interesting, more obscure, sports on early in the day I was getting up early just to watch them. Judo, fencing, white water rafting...and the two-man canoe race...that last one gave me a backache just watching it. LOL I hope you're all enjoying the games too.
I got the call Wednesday from my local yarn shop that the last couple skeins of Cascade Superwash I needed for the big blankie arrived. As soon as I finish this sock for Yarn Hollow I'll be heavy on the blankie knitting. I only have about 6 wks to get it done, wah!
Enjoy your week and I'll see you next Friday!
I'm such a poser!
