Day 81 and Smocked Fingerknitting
It's not really smocking because it's not a solid piece of fabric, but the idea is the same. I made a ridiculously long bit of finger knitting and folded it in half, then in half again, and in half one last time. Then using little bits of pink, I tied knots to make the long folded length behave as if it were a solid piece.
It's very very soft. It's surprisingly thick. It was really fast. It's totally original (not for the whole world, but for my repertoire ;) )
It's also a pretty decent cheat if you haven't figured out the solomon's knot stitch in crochet. Lord knows it took me a darn few tries to figure it out.
On a partly unrelated note, what the heck is up with my camera? Every time I scale an image down I get those weird horizontal shaded lines. I'm thinking I might have to spring for a new one soon. The flash doesn't work at all, the video feature won't allow more than 2 seconds of video, the focus may or may not work completely on a whim. I dunno, I just hate getting rid of things when they still function at a most basic level. Bah!
