I'm working the "flame picot hem"..sort of. I tried it the way the Tsarina wanted...and I simply could NOT get it to look right. So I'm doing my own thing - she wants you to use a specific cast on (the knitted on one), then you immediately bind them off...I'm using the backwards loop CO. It works for *me*. And I think it looks like her pictures, so...we're good. I hope....:lol:
Can you see the bird????? I can - but I knit the silly things. It'll pop once I do the embroidery on them - the kit came with some yellow (SCREAMING yellow!) yarn to embroider with, and, yeah - it makes the bird POP. it also came with some glass beads for the eyes - although Herself doesn't like the color - says it's not *red* enough. :shrug: Her socks, her choice. She's got beads that will be perfect, or so she says. :lol:
Herself is all atwitter over this - she can't wait for me to finish it so she can "try it on". (Like she hasn't tried it on numerous times already! :lol:)
It's almost lunchtime - laters!
