of making all this yarn stuff is that it needs care to be the best it can be.
The problem with steam is that my fingers get in the way. Steam is hot! And so my finger once got too close and I try not to repeat that experience.
vacation crochet set came out great. I made a collar to go with the mitts. The collar is nothing unique. It is just a v-stitch worked in the round with a jolt of color. It flares due to increasing the number of chains between the double crochet of the v stitch. This set will live permanently in my travel bag. The next time my row mate on a flight opens up the air flow to "arctic" I'll just pull these out and have a warm neck and toasty hands.
