If you had told me last week that this week's post would have the finished Russian Poncho, I would have laughed. Hard. I wasn't that close to finishing.
Apparently I was...
|The back. It kind of reminds me of a butterfly.|
Apologies for the awful pictures. Finding a spot with a plain background and good enough lighting proved to be impossible.
So, yeah. Tuesday, I rewatched the video because I was curious as to how she assembled the piece. And later that night I figured, "I have four squares, I might as well assemble the body". Somehow that gave me enough momentum to get that final square finished. And suddenly Friday night I was attaching the hood. All that I needed to finish Saturday was an edging along the bottom.
Now on to the next project...
In case you're keeping track, here's a bit of a timeline:
- The pin on Pinterest that started it all.
- My initial swatch.
- The first square.
- Adjusting the outside rounds.
- The link to the video (in French).
- Last week's 5th square.
