Shrug Started!

I know I was going to wait but you know…… I only cast on & did a little bit (does that count?). The Lorna’s Laces yarn is lovely to work with. The only thing I’m not happy with is that the cast on, then increasing & then joining into a circle leaves a hole in the centre. I know one of the other KALers, Kenny, suggested a circular cast on method so I may frog the lot and try that.

Yesterday I had a tyvek experiment. I painted it with Lumiere paints (lovely metallics, esp the Halo Blue-Gold) and then hit it with the iron. This is in preparation for the back cover of the Stargaze Tome. It looks like the paints determine how quickly the tyvek reacts to the heat. One piece shrivelled almost immediately to practically nothing and then the next piece (in a different colour), cut from the same sheet of Tyvek took for ever to move. I know, I should have taken some pics. Maybe I’ll get some up later today.
