March 4th

Our usual Tuesday morning group today.     I cut some string for a new large korowai. I'm thinking of a white one. I managed to cut and start a cast on row before it was time to pack up. On Wednesday I got the pattern set and a few rows of taniko which I am doing at the bottom. 

It only took me three goes to get the first pattern row of the taniko done.  It is always tricky but...   Perhaps because I am listening to Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings' read by Phil Dragash on YouTube. 
I am using gold and silver threads and a heart design I have used before for a wedding korowai. However being on the bottom I have doubled the design. 

March 1st

Today there was only a small group but we all got. Some work done. Elaine has nearly got to the top of her interesting korowai. 

She has used some eyelash type of yarn to do the red and grey areas and goose feathers flipping up. It will be a most interesting korowai when finished.
