Back to basics. I've frogged (?) this seven times already. The yarn is just beautiful but I don't have any idea what to do with it. It was an impulse to buy it, and now I'm stuck with it.

Ps. By accident published this post at Angsoka's site. Oeps...

Ritme en regelmaat helpt altijd. Dus flink opzoek op het internet, en ja hoor. SAMPLER M.
Net wat voor mij. Dus me aangemeld, en meteen maar een foto'tje er op geknald van mijn entrelac. Die heeft een leuk formaat, kan ik metéén verder. Ik hoef niet iedere week een te breien, het ene patroon kan ook langer dan het andere. Ik ga wel in wit verder.
I went out and got my self 'committed' again. To my own surprise, when I had some spare time, I found myself in the knittingstore. AGAIN. Searching for soms yarn for the April assignment. I was fed up. Up to my eyebrows in work, children and fun things to do. And still not satisfied.
Ritme and stability will do the trick, so surfed on the net and found my thing: SAMPLER M>
As soon as I got in, placed a photo of my entrelac/Lady Eleanor. It's a good start, I will continue in white. I don't have to knit a sample every week, and things I like can be longer than they have to be. Now I can move on....

This is it! My dragonfly. Sat up till late last night because I was to infatuated by it. I couldn't stop. Started with a little circle, then built it up. Then I thought it would be firmer if a q tip was the support for the body. That, ánd the fact that the body shape of a dragonfly resembles the shape of the q tip. The eyes are made out of paillets. The wings out of perlonthread and trimmed with a single thread to shape the wings. To keep it in place the pin was attached and secured with superglue.

Nou, ik zal maar eens gaan beginnen met de opdracht van Angsoka knit a long voor maart.
Haaknaaldje 0,75 en zakdoekjes garen, matblauw en perlondraad voor de vleugels. Hoe ik die ga bevestigen weet ik nog niet. Ik begin bij de staart van de libelle.
Well, it's time to start with the assignment for March knit a long. A crochet needle point 75 and handkerchiefyarn. The perlonthread is for the wings, but how I'm gonna attach them I don't know yet.
I'll start at the tail of the dragonfly.

Tijm had seen beautiful socks on Knitty usa, so I looked and found these. It will be a while before I'll make them, so many other unfinished things to attend to. My entrelac socks (still one and not done yet), to make jewelry for Angsoka. And my weddingringshawl (just a cute thing) is a prayer without an ending. I counted 11 blocks, but one half is made of 17!!!! grrrrrr.....

Bummer. No babysitter, she's on holiday, hubbie at work with the car... So I can't go to the S'n B meeting in Leeuwarden. And just as I wanted to show my stuff. Weddingshawl and the split socks. I'm also very curious how the others are, what they're doing... Now I have to wait another month. Next time I've got to plan it better. Sorry girls. As apology a lunar foto of the eclips of last sunday.

The new assignment for the Knit-a-long is to make a jewel. There is a possibility for an animal theme, but it's not neccesary. I'd like to make a dragonfly, as a broche. Crochet-ing the whole thing looks the most obvious thing to do. No idea how, but it will be quite 'petit'.
