Happy Wednesday everyone.
I have been working on the Amber Mystery CAL by FreshStitches for the last few weeks. I have finished clue 1 and clue 2 just in time for clue 3 which was released this morning but I have not started it yet.
Clue 2 had a strange piece that used short rows (Piece K at the front of the photo). I never knew you could do short rows in crochet! You learn something new everyday.
I used this FreshStitches tutorial to crochet the rows backwards instead of turning the piece – basically you use your left hand to crochet the stitches instead of using your normal right hand (if you crochet with your left hand normally you would use your right hand). It was very awkward at first but I think the result is OK.
Now I just have the 1 remaining piece to do from Clue 3 and then the assembly! I have been very good today and not looked at the end of the clue 3 document to see what the animal is. So I can’t tell you what it is.
I am going to go and make a start on the final piece of the mystery. Be sure to check out Tami’s Amis Blog to see what other people are working on.
