What do you get if you add. . .
I started by thinking about how could I decorate a Christmas tree using pink yarn that wasn't as time consuming as straight knitting. Boom! Hairpin lace garland! (picture #4) At first I had started thinking about a garland made from an I-cord. Then I realized it would be next year at this time and I would still be making an I-cord and I would have become the I in I-cord.. Next I thought of knitting little Christmas balls which would require double pointed needles and stuffing. Boom! Pompoms (picture #5) Now I was rolling and it seemed possible to actually finish this before Christmas. It really had to be finished and up in the museum before December 1. Then I remembered crochet is much faster than knitting. Boom! Crocheted icicles! (Picture # 6) Then I found these great snowflake buttons (picture #7) at Yarn Envy and all of a sudden I was hooked. Finally, I found a Survivor Shawl in the making (picture #3), bound it off and Spectacular Shades of Pink the Christmas tree edition seemed more and more possible.
Dick and I went to the museum last Saturday and trimmed the tree and here it is.
Well, I must go up to The Stash Studio and see what trouble I can get into. My next post will be so amazing (even if I do say so myself). I can't wait to share.
