Curve of Pursuit....not!

Well, there it is...the sort of disaster. The silk/cotton yarn just didn't take to the pattern that I bought at all. I decided that I could do it by crocheting it and love the pattern...I might even write it up if anyone is interested. The picture isn't very good because I have it hung from the top corner. I'll try and get a better picture outside this weekend if I get a chance. Anyway, the disaster is the colors. They aren't anything like the quilt I was basing it one...which I can't show you because I took a picture at the Internation Quilt show and I don't have permission to post it. Anyway....I have now decided to switch to another pattern that I will be able to use the same colors but it will look better. I have to buy a few more colors...and can't use all the colors I bought...so that means more yarn for my stash!!! Oh well......

The pattern is way cool even if the colors aren't perfect! Please do post the pattern sometime. How large is this?

I don't think it's a disaster at all, it looks great! Looks complicated to make, too!

I third it: not a disaster, it's a first draft. The design is brilliant -- do it again in different colours, write it up, then if there's a crochet equivalent to knitty or magknits, submit it.

Go on, fame awaits :-)
