Pretty hand and a quest

Filed under: General,Knitting,Teaching — by bethc @ 3:48 pm

First this is my pretty hand. Thanks to the remarkable talents of an amazing woman I, along with all of my students, now have this beautiful mehndi. Every year I am left in awe of her talent to create these beautiful designs on lots of people in a short time, all free-hand.

Next, I am about to start a two-colored pinwheel blanket. I love the way this one looks, but alas there is no link for this mysterious Beth. Anyone know her? I would really like to know how many rounds she did and/or how she worked out the stripes. Anyone? Anyone?

  1. I love the mehndi on your hand!!! I think that would be beautiful if embroidered on a glove. I might be getting some ideas here…

    Love the blanket too! That will be great!

  2. Prettttty.

    Perhaps if you emailed “Larissmix” (the blogger) she’d put you in touch with otherBeth. To me, it looks like the stripes proportionally increase, sort of like this:
    center blue…
    2 green
    12 blue
    4 green
    10 blue
    6 green
    8 blue
    8 green
    6 blue
    10 green
    4 blue
    12 green
    2 blue
