The preparations for the Road Trip is in high gear. So far we have selected the type of yarn and tentatively the size of the jumbo hook, that may change however.

The jumbo hook gives a bigger lacier cloth, which is not what we are looking for in a collar, we need to keep a certain scale or cohesiveness.

Your jumbo hook should be maybe a baby jumbo? I would have shown you mine, but I got up off the sofa, and that hook has disappeared, everything else I found, except baby jumbo, that means I am about to lose 10 minutes of my precious time, looking for him, it is annoying…

The stitches we are using are the broomstick and the single and the double and let us leave it open since we are not going to be bog down by design at this moment, that will come freely later. One thing is certain, it won’t be all about broomstick.

You get the picture, any stitch can show up..keep practicing, See You Soon…. Enjoy Today it is a gift….

  3. Thanks for including the really helpful diagrams.

    I’m glad I’m not the only person who misplaces things. Last week-end I came across an old telegram that was really interesting–so I filed it away carefully. Later, I wanted to show it to someone and couldn’t find it for the life of me. (The good news is that after searching for it for more hours than I’d like to admit, I finally found it.)
