Turquoise Patches is now Turquoise Waves...
Becky from Fluflla asked me why the name of caramel popcorn ?? It's not from the design, as I only knit from Japanese magazines ( I wouldn't be able to tell whether there is a name). I just name my knitting work for the convenience of reference.... Maybe it doesn't show well in the photo but looking closely it really reminders me of the caramel flavored popcorn my kids buy at the movie theater. Becky also has a popcorn jacket and hers look more the real white popcorn! I don't know why I started to choose names related to food, maybe when I am bloging I am hungry! ha ha ! :) I also have a Mint Tea and Laura from Knitalicious, got Green Tea!
I finished the back and sewed the shoulders of Popcorn Caramel on Monday. Did you see, how little yarn I have left!
I think is enough for a simple crochet border, but I can't decide yet what to do. If I get an extra ball I will be left with 3 more balls as it is sold as a pack of 4. So Popcorn caramel will be destined to my waiting basket. Won't be lonely though, it has company from Pink Beryl and Mint Tea! :) Don't like doing so; however I need to keep going ......
Oh, do you like my knitting basket? It was a gift from my Sis, so that I would remember of her everytime I knit! Yes, I was able to squeeze it in my luggage and the handle survived.
Now, the real show... Turquoise Patches has turned into Turquoise Waves! Giving a break after a failure helps a lot the nerves and make it easier to frog it.
As I was knitting Turquoise Waves I was surfing into my stitches with happiness and encouragement ! Yeh, I am happy with it now. :) The size seems to be all right and I am using a smaller needle size ( Clover 4, 3.5 mm).
Have a nice weekend! I am going to my young boy's graduation trip ( from elementary school) this weekend. It will be somewhere in the mountains , about 100 people including kids and parents and I really hope the rain will give us a break as it has been pouring non stop!
