Tutorial Wednesday

It just doesn’t sound the same, lol.  I am feeling much better, thank you.  I even had a fun stop-in at my LYS, looking for the elusive blue and orange yarn.  She will order them for me, and I should have them by December 1.

In keeping with last week’s Hardanger theme, here is a link to a post I did in the past about the star motif common in Hardanger.  This motif can be incorporated in any number of designs.  I know I promised a tutorial for the ship, and as I’m sitting here trying to write it, I realize I don’t have the pictures for it that I was sure I’d taken.  So I will show you some examples of how I’ve used this motif instead.  A ship is basically a star with 4 funky arms.

This was my first attempt at understanding the directions I found.  You’ll see that I put them together to make a cross shape.  To make an actual ship-shape, the “funky arms” should be on the side portions, with the star points at the top or bottom.
This shows another use for those “funky arms” – flowers!  You can also see what can be done by making only half of the star motif.
I am motivated now to stitch a ship and take pictures of it – I can’t believe I lost those!!!
