I spent much of my sitting time during the weekend working on the ecru necklace. I knew I wanted it to be big, to really show off the finer thread, but I didn't have a plan for the design at all. This is quite literally made up as I went. This picture was taken on Saturday as I was working on rows of basket stitch. There wasn't much math needed for that section, though the section before was based on part of the doily I made and that needed math. It also needed me to change some things to make it work out okay. I'm just glad I've learned enough already to make design choices and changes that work.

This picture was taken late yesterday evening after working on the necklace for another whole day. Well, most of the day anyway, we did have plenty of family time before I sat down to it. Oh, and I spent quite some time trying to solve a front door lock problem, because I'm handy like that. Once I did get to work though, I added another couple of rows of basket stitch before deciding how I wanted to finish the piece. I'm opting for a bit of a scallop edge that I had to stop and math out too.

Since today is a holiday for all of us, I think I should have time to finish it. I'm now kind of dreading pricing it for the shop though. It's taken a long time and it's quite intricate, but I do not want to overprice it. Any advice on that point would be welcome. I won't even try to get it listed today even if I finish it though. I'll just try and decide what I want to make next.
