third week of february

things that passed through my fingers this week.

The detail is showing a tiny little "pocket" opening of the top section.  


The details here also have little "pockets" on the pleated areas.


 
For the friend from insta/world/gram who used the word "tease," this is the full view.

To break the thread flow, I also knitted up a few hats this week.  Another stash, another story.

Thaw is a word that might have to be eliminated from the vocabulary - we are suppose to go back to a deep freeze again during the next week.

So for those who wander by, keep warm and cheers.

Exciting week ahead.  Stitching from Northern England, Karen Ruane's SimpleStitch4 starts.  Join the madness in search of cake crumbs.


Cheerio.

  3. stitching from Northern England.....I love it and i love what you have here. Pockets always win with me and you are a tease....but thank you. I particularly love strips on 'intersection'. I wish I could get in your head and watch these pieces you create so beautifully evolve from the first seed of the idea....by the way, I stopped by yesterday and this wasn't here. I subscribe and appear to get them a day late.....oh and the top pieces, the soft, almost falling folds? Beauteous.
