Stardate 1002.06 - experiments


NEW original designs!
It's a mystery where design ideas come from - usually I just play around until something happens that I like. For those who have been after me to get going on another book, well... I made it as far as making a new folder on my computer - one small step at a time, you know.

More "Stardate" has been listed in my Etsy shop, in several different types of thread as well as the laceweight wool/silk blend yarn.

Thanks! But, don't throw out the pieces that didn't work! I keep my "failures" in a samples bag. I look at those to get ideas, estimate stitch counts, put them together to see what fits, use a small mirror to get an idea of symmetry, etc. It's all a learning experience.

Both are beautiful. I just absolutely love the earrings!

Your thread just gets better all the time. You are truly a master of HDT. Thank you for producing colourways that allow us to tat pieces that amaze us and would be other wise impossible. Your earring design is awesome and another Yarnplayer award winner.
