All this tick infection business makes me want to stay inside and stitch. How about you?
Here’s an update on the yo-yo shawl. I’ve made all the cut circles into yo-yo’s and laid them out. This is just a tentative lay-out, you understand, to see the size and I see that I need more circles. I'll work on the color lay-out more as I go along. (This picture looks like there are blue yo-yo's but they are really deep red and deep purple.)
My original plan was to cover plastic rings and randomly place them. The only rings I had were too small.
I looked at all the fabric/craft stores and hyaku yen stores and even Homac (not exactly, but something like a Lowe’s or Menards in the US), but I didn't find them. My friend Jamie and I searched the four floors of Kanariya in Sapporo, then tried to tell the store clerks what we wanted. Either they don't have them or the store employees didn't understand us. Working with the small ones I have, I kept going around the initial covering until it was big enough.
