We had several guests with us at the last Sunshine get together, and enjoyed seeing their work. I’m not good at remembering names, so please excuse the errors and omissions.Janice is doing Whirligig, a pattern by Suzanne Hill.
This is a one end of a very large rug designed by Martina Lazar. The colours just pop against that light background.
The fishes below will be hung as wall plaques.
I was very interested in how they were being finished. I have always avoided hooking convoluted shapes, because I had no idea how one would bind the edges.This hooker (I apologize for not knowing her name) has come up with a wonderful method which not only provides a great finish, but sets off the vibrant colours with the black edging. She is using material like a bias tape which surrounds the raw edges and hides them completely when sewn in place on both sides.I’m surely going to remember this method, and if I ever get the nerve to attempt such a moving edge, I’ll give it a try.
If and when I get back to my own knitting, I’m going to try knitting socks from the toe up.
Gail….I know for sure I took a photo of your knitting, but my camera gremlin must have been hungry and swallowed it….because it is nowhere to be found!!
Happy hooking. Thanks for stopping by.
