Monkey while at Knit New York.
We introduced a newbie knitter to the joys of a yarn swift and ball winder and had many people come out back to find what the laughter was about. I'm exhausted so I left work at 5:30 today to come home, eat, do some beading and sleep. Beading consisted of finishing up the orange orchid here:
The orange is prototype 2. The white was prototype 1.
I think that I am actually happy with the result of prototype 2. The petal proportions are about right. I think I'll stare at the lip a little more to see if I like it. Also, those silver lined orange beads are a much better improvement over the pearl white. I think I also need to do some shading.
