Every day I'm rufflin'!
I apologise, I can't help it. I sing the line and do a little dance, every time I think of it. Ella is moving along nicely, thankyouverymuch!
I failed to blog about it last week, but the sleeves and the bodice are done, blocked and seamed.
Done just in the nick of time, because the next step was up on the blog on Monday night. Cuffs and Ruffles!
Pink yarn comes out to play! Bling! Ruffles! Yay!
I played around with it for a little while. I have just one skein of pink blingy yarn, so there's not enough for all the ruffles, but it needs to be in there somewhere.
So I decided to go with a few rows of the bling, then with the plain yarn for the ruffles.
I went with option B of Nora's suggestions, the picot edge cast off. Slow as molasses, but totally worth it.
So now, the bodice is done, all ready for next Monday's hints and tips.
And I think the armholes are fine!Posted by Donna at February 17, 2012 08:34 PM
