A big hello from South Africa! Kaleidoscopes create an astounding spectrum of colour in a symmetrical form. I do have to admit though that I feel like Kylie Sven Opossum (of Fantastic Mr Fox's fame) when he gets zoned out and his eyes turn into comical swirls, from this overload of kaleidoscopic hooky colour!
I am using 8 different colours and this is one of those projects that takes forever to put together. It is a time consuming exercise from the frequent changing of colours to the volume of threads to work away. I cannot wait to see the end result even though it is still a few weeks away as I need to buy another round of yarn in order to hook many more triangles. Each of the triangles measures 14cm per side.
I am joining the triangles on the wrong side with a slip stitch and it turns out to be a very neat way of joining - the downside is the numerous ends to weave in . . .
Once I joined the six triangles, I also hook a connector from the outside in where the gap is left. I am deviating from Amanda's pattern and am connecting the triangles with two US triple crochet stitches in each gap to create a simple flower connector.
I have been neglecting my housekeeping duties in lieu of hooky time this week, but I am starting to feel crunch underfoot from all the dried leaves that enters the house with the kids and cats in tow. Meh! I am unsure though whether I am in the mood to vacuum the entire Pigtails Palace or whether I will be concentrating my efforts to selected areas only. I am thinking of worrying only about the kitchen floor and the area around my chair which is strewn with numerous cotton yarn threads. Have a great day!
