• #7DayLucetChallenge Day 3 –

    Adding beads to the cord, now.  I don’t have beads large enough for the worsted weight yarn, so switched to the leftover yarn and beads from the Rock the Kasbah shawl.  The finer yarn is trickier to work with, and I had to practice on tension, but it didn’t take long to get my rhythm.  I’ve found that I like a tighter tension with the finer yarn.  You can’t see the i-cord, but it makes a really pretty, and very strong cord.  I’m using a crochet hook to put the beads on the yarn, but moving the loop over the loom with my fingers.  The hairpin lace loom continues to work well, but I think a Lucet has to go on my Christmas list.  It would make turning the work a lot faster.  And you know how I like speed!  For more info, go to www.stitchdiva.com to take the Challenge…

    Speaking of which, I am making progress with the 2 knitting projects on the needles.  The front of Messaline is looking good, and so is my little Annetarsia Fancy Feet sock.   When I put the projects together, in this photo, it looks like I have a real “arrow” thing going on, doesn’t it?  Hopefully pointing in a good direction!
