Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

LBD and new Beatrice Wrap

Saturday night event.  LBD.  New hand-crocheted wrap with a bit of sparkle.  Husband in tuxedo.  All the things a gal needs for a special date.

Red Heart Stardust, superwash wool, nylon and a bit of sparkle.  The pattern is free-- Beatrice Wrap.

I think I'll block it so the picot edging is a bit more stable.  Also, I want the Solomon's Knots not to be knotted.   Here's the detail.

So there you have it.  This is a wonderful pattern.  It's labeled "Experienced" and I'll admit to needing some help with those Solomon's Knots.  Check out Crochet Geek on YouTube for help -- you can see what I learned.  Crochet Geek -- video link at the top of the home page.

I hope they serve a fine champagne at the event on Saturday night.  This sparkly wrap deserves a dress-up  beverage, don't ya know!
