I’ve decided that now that C10 temari seem so easy to make, I need to step it up to the next level and get comfortable marking 32-centered designs. I marked this 32 on the way back from MI, having started it the night before we left. It took me most of the first day in the car to finish (and I’m talking about just the marking here, none of the stitching). It reminded me of why I hadn’t been really eager to do a whole bunch of 32s back when I first learned how to do the marking. So. Much. Tacking.
On the other hand, once you’re done tacking down every single friggin’ intersection, you can do some pretty awesome things.
That’s a hito hude gake (HHG) continuous path design with three shades of a color that walks the line between peach and rose, but on the bright side. My favorite coneflowers from out in the yard are about that color, as you can see. Anyway, I was pretty pleased with how the ball turned out, even if I suspect the marking could have been more even. There are more 32s in my not-too-distant future, I’m sure.
