So glad the soccer games are over. For a month my cable Internet has gone down as soon as the broadcast of a game began. Usually it was about the time I wanted to post here.
This is one time (the first time?) a project has scanned to look better than it does in real life. I was interested in learning how to make these swirls. In real life they are floppy and you can see threads too easily. I first tried the very round pearl 11s but they were even worse. I was surprised the instructions called for 11s. Maybe with 15s the thread spaces would be smaller.
I tried putting two together to make the rings less floppy. Should I try using 8s? If the finished product would look as good as it does here, I might.
