Boom Chakalaka!

Wendy knows that I can't resist her patterns....so when Chakalaka came out, I rummaged around for some cotton in my stash, and started to work on it. Let me tell ya something. I don't like cotton. The small size needle (a 5) plus 3 strands of cotton equals sore hands. But, I persevered. And here is the finished product:



Inside, bite size versions of some of my favorite candies. Mmmm....



Also, while we're discussing finished objects, I finished my entrelac scarf. I love the colors of the Silk Garden Lite, love the entrelac pattern. I'm going to have to hunt down more patterns with entrelac, I like it so much.
The obligatory mirror shot...like my pjs?

Beautiful entrelac! Is it a smaller Lady E, or another pattern?

Entrelac is so lovely. It looks fabulous. The candy bowl (Chakalaka) is so sweet!

Both are lovely, but I really like the mini Cadbury Creme Eggs.

I love the scarf! I've got to learn entrelac next...the stuff I've seen is just so cool!
And I love your Chakalaka...it almost looks like a giant chocolate bird needs to sit down on it and keep those creme eggs warm....mmmmm!!!

Have really enjoyed watching the progress of that scarf, very inspiring. And I had no idea that you could get Cadbury Creme eggs stateside!
