Started the first wing. Pretty happy with progress. Working flat has made the traditional knot stitch more difficult and slower. Makes me want to knit though the back loop. But doing that would make the yarn settle differently making the work look different. Keeping it traditional.
Looking back the piece had some mistakes completely due to my own in-attention to either the stitches in the piece or the pattern.
I still need to find beads for the roasted pumpkin wild silk version.
Plus I think I have someone to give this marino version to.
