This UFO here was trying its best to disguise as a skirt or a dishcloth. I don't know which. Innocuous enough but something trigger my warning bells.
So I prodded it a little and gasp! It's a pink UFO saucer!
Nah, it’s just my shrug. Though I must say, it does look like some strange creature in that snapshot up above.
Ribbing - Phildar Flirt in Hot Pink
Seed stitch - Schachenmayr Punto in Pastel Pink & DMC in Purple
I used Seed Stitch. Yes I was trying to finish up some yarns and make sure I have enough for the shrug. It's a mish mash of yarns and patterns I have. :) So here -
Excuse my shaky hands. For some reason my hands was pretty shaky last night. Try as I may, the picture on the right has been taken many time, but still shaky. That was the best of the lot.
Here is a shot of the back and side. That's all the acrobatics I can manage for the back. Don't ask for more or I'll probably sprain my back. I had to take this shot 3 times to make it work.
This project was suppose to be a simple project. I had trouble starting though. I ended up ripping mine a couple of times. I started with the Punto but realized I didn't have enough yarn. I only had 3 balls. So I had to rip. Then I decided to use Phildar Flirt for the ribbing instead and use Punto with the purple DMC to help blend the 2 pink yarns better. I think the color blend worked out fine. Then it was waay too big, so rip again. 4th time was the charm. Not too bad! I still have 3 more balls of Punto in blue. That's destined for Minisweater from Glampyre.
