on the needles . . . i casted on the first of the purl bee’s pompom peds in dove grey. in lieu of pom poms, i’m going with a picot cast on. i’ve also been working on this 100% silk (in ballet pink !) in a new design . . i’ve found that i do best to have one project that i’m designing as well as one that i’m just following a pattern, beats any boredom !
