Which Schway Did He Go
This week's Diva Challenge was to use Maria Thomas' awesome new tangle 'Schway'. It's probably all kinds of illegal but I'm going to cut and paste the directions here because it is just so nifty: Two simple steps make all of those arrows!
I thought about not posting this challenge entry because, while I was so anxious to try this pattern-as well as take a much needed stress break, the resulting tile was less than stellar. In fact it down right stinks, but it did the job as a stress reliever anyway. My challenge rules are that I always go with the first attempt. Sometimes it works. In this here particular case....not so much.
So to apologize, I will share this one that , while unshaded, I am much happier with. It's one of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes. I did it on Friday night at a coffee shop while I was visiting with the Knit Sisters. You can double click on it to make it a little bigger.
If and when I get it shaded, I'll repost.
At any rate, thanks again Maria for a cool pattern and Laura for a wonderful challenge. I'm sorry my first attempt didn't do it the justice it deserves. I am looking forward to refining my execution of this pattern once things settle down again!
