This Round is Done!


Many views :)

This last row took 1 hour and 20 mins to make one out of ten half round, the last 5 was 1 hour and 10 minutes.  This is size 40 from Handy Hands, Lizbeth 698.

the grand total was close to 13 hours for row 13
I will be using these shuttles from here on. They are wonderful slick and sturdy,  and hold tons of thread that will not unwind, I ordered the larger shuttles offered, and to go all way round I filled once, and used a tad bit on the second fill up as you can see.

Oh yea I got new boots that are very comfortable we do hike around twice a month.

I don't have room to just lay this around so I fold it up like this.

Having fun here, and hope you all have a great day. Now I got to go clean something, and I have plenty to choose from :)

  4. Wow you tat fast! I think it would have taken me 1 hour to go around each scallop. I've been using the large Clover shuttles, but the ones you have here look like they hold more thread. May have to check them out.

    1. I may not have explained it well, it took an hour and 20 min for each scallop and there are 10 of them. As I got half way done I speed up the time to 1 hour 10 mins.
