New nail color called Pat On The Black. It looks nearly black but up close you can see a hint of deep wine purple. By the time I try on something that, for me is a new thing, everyone else is done with it and has moved on to something else. In this regard I'm always behind the fashion but in my own way looking unique at the same time without trying! Sloth not goth.
The cap is finito. It looks absolutely awful on me. It would probably help if I had more hair sticking out from underneath it like the girls in the pictures do. But eh. I'll make a different version and try a different stitch... I have all summer to make a cap I like, right? In the mean time this one will go into the Mallow museum of forgotten handmade artifacts.
I've made another flower. I like the repetitive aspect of making crocheted stuff. I don't know what I'll do with the flowers. Anyone want to buy them? Etsy here I come? Stay tuned as more flowers and other crochet projects will make their debut here on Flatland.
Who is watching you reading me watching me looking at you? I dunno.
All these flags will get cleared out tomorrow since I've gone back to "normal" stat counter status after realizing there is no point in keeping track of a few people (13 hits at most during one day). So why pay 9 bucks for the extra service? Most of these people come to my blog because of a series of pictures I posted of a certain motorcycle. Lame.
YOU are particularly intriguing.
After two more undo and unravel sessions I have finally neared the end (and learned to read instructions!). Today I went out to get some red yarn for the scalloped border but didn't find any yarn I liked.. so I guess she'll stay all green till the end.
Here is my first flower.. awww.
Gettin' all fancy on the second one. Like I know what I'm doing.. ahahahahahahaha. Right.
Some glass beads I got today. Made in china unfortunately -I know, but I couldn't resist them. I also bought some suede like green yarn, and a multicolor orange yarn that fades from light orange to a brighter salmon color. The yarn for the petals on the second flower are similar to this orange one, so when you work with it you get that changing mottled colorful look.
Then I spotted this amazing book of Kathryn Alexander's wow! Such cool colorful scarves and sweater projects in this book.. but check out her website for some cool hats and socks too! Here is a taste from her webpage.
