During my clear out of the sewing room/yarn room/soap room I found a very vintage project I've been meaning to pick up again. I started it in 2010.
I love working on this mosaic/slip stitch throw but I had to put it in time out until I could decide on the colors for the next border. That was a year ago on the 14th. Yikes.
In my defense, it's not easy putting anything with purples and the rule is I can only work from my late aunt's Red Heart Super Saver stash.
Burgundy and white won the race. They were the lesser of many evils in that big tub of cheapo acrylic I inherited.
It took me quite a while to remember what was going on with this thing. There is a lot of math involved in centering the pattern and picking up the stitches you need to form the borders but the process came back to me, thank goodness. I really want to finish this homage to my crafty aunt who made all this fun possible and I'm hoping this is the last of the borders. We'll see.
What was the last thing you made out of someone else's yarn?
