|Adding blackwork style detail to band 7|
Hubby's praise for this floral band makes me think I should use this one to stitch up a hatband for my grey linen sunhat ... although I do have another I am also considering, I need to stitch it out to check the scale first. I don't want it too wide.
Speaking of the sunhat, I wore it yesterday to the library to return/renew/check out more books. One of the books I returned was titled Hats Made Easy! and when I handed it to one of the ladies behind the desk, she asked if I had made my hat. I told her yes, but from a Vogue pattern .... the book is actually a good one but mostly focused on drafting your own hat patterns. Given my stash of hat patterns, this one - while good - is not useful for me at this point.
I'll wait and make a separate post for my lace-making efforts ... and I started band 9 last night on the sampler. It's a little past lunch time, and I feel productive already today ... here's hoping the energy level stays up!
