I made significant progress on the round yoke last night… If you consider my ripping out 4 hours of crocheting this morning progress. I do, actually, I’ve now got a sound grasp of the concept, As Robyn said, “It’s like crocheting a flat circle but with a hole in the middle.” and I’ve codified it, working out my own gauge, stitch pattern and placement of increases. I had to rip simply because I wanted a wider neckline to start. I’m looking forward to digging back in, but it’s going to have to wait until I get some more mundane computer stuff done.
I’m sorry I didn’t photograph my piece before I ripped, so you’re going to have to be satisfied with the swatch, above. It’s a sneak peak for a garment I’m working on for a fall magazine in the luscious Lorna’s Laces green line. I just love the very subtle shading in this yarn and it is made of a super-soft organic merino and dyed using sustainable methods.
Oh, and we have a winner for the Apron Contest! Steel City Knitter who has plans to give it away to her mom. Congratulations!
