I Need Closure
For my Bohus ... I need something to close my Bohus! Snaps, or perhaps frogs, or some sort or hooking latch-y thing! The original pattern called for a big ol' ribbon, but I am just not the ribbon type.
Excuse the flash. Not that it did much good.
The top part actually does meet at the edges, but not easily. I will have to use a closure that allows a half-inch gap. Then it can just hang open from the bottom of the colorwork.
I just wish I were a smidge smaller around the upper torso, so it would fit properly. Plus, I knit colorwork very snugly--I just can't seem to loosen up. I should frog all the color work, then re-do it, but I don't know if I will or not. I'll put some closers on it, and see how I like it then.
Meanwhile, I hexipuff away, and I have to tell you this is a fantastic way to use up the little yarn strands laying around.
I can use up every inch of all the yarn ends I can't bear to throw away. The one on the left is my favorite -- four different bits of yarn. Cascade, knit-picks dyed with Kool-Aid, and Vanna acrylic. There might be some slight wonkiness with gauge, but I will use up all my odds-n-ends!
Don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis for Finished Object Friday! And if I don't see you before then, Merry Christmas!
