Summer’s Promise

I tested this pattern for Katchkan. Stash busted the thread. It really feels good to bust your stash. From a distance:

One of my friends says she cannot see my photos when they are Flickred because her net server blocks the site. Does this happen to anyone else?

Here are the details of the project:

Thread: Size 20 Anchor in Green, Size 20, some odd size held together with sewing thread and unmercerised thread about size 20 in White. (I did say I was busting stash!)

Hook: Tulip 1.5 mm steel (one of my favourite sizes/hooks)

Pattern: Katchkan‘s Summer’s Promise (tested)
Time: Over 2 weeks
Size: 22.5″ from picot to picot.

Kathy is an amazing designer and I always learn something from each of her patterns. She’s also wonderfully fast and seems to whip up these patterns overnight. Currently she’s working on a skirt and top. Wow.

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.
