Because Feb was so short I completely forgot to post an update for my New Years Reasulotion work on the Happy Hippo.
No photo as I have been getting all set up for the Pannel I will be running this weekend at Kawa Kon. After this weekend I will try to get some photos of it posted here!
I am up to 9 out of 44 motifs. I finished assembling the back end. For March I plan on finishing up the belly and back, possibly starting the front legs.
There are a few things I want to work on after the convention is done that I was inspired to try but wont have the time till them.
I was hoping I could finish my 'Not a Jayne' hat to wear to the convention as I was working on it in a new variation of a sc stitch so it would mimic tunisian knit with out having all the stitchs on a hook. Basically I was working between the post's instead of under the top bar's. Because this is a new way of working a stitch I am still getting my tension figured out and had to frog it 3 times before I just gave up on it for the night.
If I can figure out a good way of working it with out the stitch's getting all tight I might try and do a tutorial for it. Normally I dont have an issue with my stitches being tight but because I am not working into the top but into the post I am trying to adjust the right spot with out the whole stitch being loose.
