Sorry we were missing last week, we did get together on Skype but I had nothing to share, as I stalled on the SAL, big style.
It was an odd night this week. Had another attempt, started off with a pointy needle for backstitch and was making such a mess of things it looked like a sketch rather than an outline - that railroad track at the bottom right is supposed to be a nice clean line!
So I stopped, and did a bit of crochet.
But as my BFF had decided to start on a cover kit we both have, I felt guilty and decided to start the same. And thus was born BFF SAL 6. We both started in the same place here, we're working on a rubberised plasticy strange Aida - does it have a real name? The picture here makes it look like there's a fault, but I think it's just a reflection as I can't see it on the real thing!
I did return to the crochet at the end of the night, and finished off my latest hat. It requires a pompom, but I shall be purchasing a faux fur one rather than making a woolly one. I've found in the past that woollen ones are rarely as good as the amount of effort required!
