Introducing Rhonda

This is not Rhonda. But this is where the name came from. A very magnificent rhododendron growing at the end of our street. It seemed intuitive at the time.

THIS is Rhonda:

Or rather her cute little sleeve of which I happen to be immensly proud.

This is the picot edging around her neckline:

Which I do like, but will like much more when she is blocked.

This is her, in all her glory:

Well the top half anyway. And aren’t I good, I’ve been darning in ends as I go 🙂

The reason you havent been introduced before now is that things got off to an uncertain start, primarily because I am making-her-up-as-we-go-along and seeing-how-it-goes. So far, so good!

In other news a small ladybird winged her way to a new home with my friend Lucy

(no sure if winged is a word)

But I like the back of this brooch the best (and the alliteration is pretty rad too.)

And I went to the library today! In amongst the books from the 80’s on hats and mosaic knitting I found three great books:

I LOVE Erika Knights books, and have been wondering what to do with all my little odds and ends of yarn lately- the flowers book will be wonderful. The felting book just appealed and has some great ideas. Its the lily on the front that caught my attention.

And now I’m off to pick up the stitches around the waist of Rhonda and finish her off. Though not all in one sitting of couse!

    Rhonda’s colors are supreme! I, too, love the knitted flowers book. Will have to check Erika Knight’s as well.
