I had big plans for this crochet ribbon. It was going to be the cutest little garland for decorating the Christmas tree as part of my plans for a handmade Christmas.
These adorable little butterfly's would have turned out much better if I had used a cotton yarn, and that is what I intend to do one day. But I've decided to simply abandon this version, there's no definition to the butterfly's, they are all curly and I can't see blocking being very successful with this yarn.
I attribute those problems to the cheap polyester yarn. I originally purchased the yarn in the hopes it would be a colour match for the 'Drops In The Frog Pond' afghan I was working on as I could not get a hold of any more of the matching yarn.
Get the pin for Mrs. Micawbers original Flutterby Curtin Tie.
Mrs. Micawber's Flutter-By Curtain Ties Free Crochet Pattern with Tutorial to create my butterfly ribbon that didn't quite become a garland. Next time I give this pattern a try I intend to leave a half dozen stitches in between each butterfly to help add a bit of length.
Project started:These photos are dated 25 August 2016 so yeah, this has been hanging around for almost a year waiting for me to make a decision to continue to work on it or not. It's time to just let go.
Last worked on the project:Just before Christmas 2015 when I tried to crochet it to a reasonable length before finishing it.
Still to do:Rip it apart.
Update on Last Friday's Paint Job
Was there progress?YES, in so much as I put all the stuff back in the hallway. Not so much as in getting started on preparing the final bit of wall that needs to be painted.
Did I enjoy working on it?NO. But it needs to be done and it's totally worth doing.
Will I continue to work on it?YES. Eventually I'll get around to doing that last section.
That's it for another week of #FinishItFriday. Happy Finishing!
