This selection includes Bavarian knees from the Hofbräuhaus, a ceiling from the Villa Stuck, Austrian snow scenes, sketches for improved beaded borders (plus me doing the sketches), and a little wool shop in Salzburg. I didn’t find any lace weight yarn in Munich or Salzburg – except for something that’s a bit like Kidsilk Haze – I bought some in red. I also got some blue Indian glass beads at the Ethnographic Museum, like size 8 seed beads but very irregular.
Thanks for all the comments on the BSM – its official name is Black Swan Mantilla. I’ve decided to go ahead and publish the fringed version, even though it’s a complex project, and goes completely against my resolution to keep things simple! I will include an easier border option.
