I’m feeling like the poor rabbit from “Alice in Wonderland” …..
I’m late! I’m late!
For a very important date!
No time to say “Hello”, goodbye!
I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!
I to am late for a very important date. Making the video for part 17 of Mandala Madness has taken more time than I had hoped, but looking at all the details of this part it is almost inevitable that it would take me more time than one part usually does. The video for week 17 is more than 1.5 hours long, so it took me a LOT of time to make for you (keep in mind that it takes me up to 8 times longer to make a video than the video duration). But, happily I am here now, and all is well that ends well!
We are almost done with our mandala and this week we are seriously decorating the shells we made last week. We are making lots of back and front post stitches, popcorns, clusters and other frills to decorate the outer edge of the mandala. And no worries if you think this is too hard for you, in the video I show you everything step-by-step. All videos for Mandala Madness are available through my YouTube channel and on my blog grouped on this dedicated video page. In the video for week 17 I show you how to work the decorations for this week.
I use two Scheepjes yarns for my mandala; Scheepjes Sunkissed and Scheepjes Cotton 8 with a 3mm (D-3) hook. There are yarn packs available for this CAL in Scheepjes Color Crafter, Scheepjes Stone Washed XL and Scheepjes Merino Soft, available from Deramores and Wool Warehouse. Here a list of the colors I used for week 17.
|Round||Yarn||Color number||Color name|
|round 103||Sunkissed||14||spearmint green|
|round 104||Sunkissed||13||cherry ice|
|round 105||Cotton 8||652||grey-blue|
|round 106||Cotton 8||717||bordeaux|
|round 107||Cotton 8||652||grey-blue|
A small peak at my mandala at the moment. I will show you the full result next time when we finish this project.
Only one more part to go and we are all done. Next time we are finishing up our mandala and then I will give you a complete list of all the colors I used for each round as well as the amount of yarn I used per color. And of course a full reveal and lots of photographs of my mandala.
