At the Boardwalk
Second pattern from the 4 hats with 2 skeins.
At the Boardwalk is now available via Ravelry.
Yarn was Cascade Heritage 150 (sports weight), with gauge of 29 sts and 33 rows = 4"x 4" / 10 cm x 10 cm in stranded colorwork.
I have a simple shawl just cast off my needles last week, but I'm totally lacking the motivation to take photos. Hopefully soon.
School started last week. It's always exhausting at the beginning trying to put in the rules, at the same time being encouraging so to build students trust. It's a funny thing to teach art. Because we give a lot of constructive criticisms, and there is a lot of egos invested in works that students do, even at such beginning level. Sometimes, it's a fine balance to tell one students s/he is not as good as s/he thinks, and turning around and say to the next student that s/he doesn't suck as bad as s/he think.
