Midnight Progress---slow with one over one


and



Not looking like alot tonight but just the teal part alone was 72 stitches.
I had to start adding another color to maintain my markings.
The pattern actually folds out quite large but this is supposed to be on a 4 x 5 design when finished.
The first time I actually used the tiny little major magnifing portion of the lamp. I almost had to look into it like a microscope. I put on those old reader glasses of +1.75 and the magnifying and counted. Thoughts of grabbing the colposcopy during lunch tomorrow popped into my mind as that magnifies alot for biopsies......we won't go there though......LOL
After my right eye started crossing (my lazy one), I had to stop on it tonight! : 0

  1. Your progress looks great
    Over one is a bit tedious - but the result - oh so wonderful

    Take Care

  2. Oh the dreaded one over one. It will be simply beautiful when completed. The time consumed will be well worth the effort.
    Be always in stitches.

  3. I am anxious to see this one completed. I don't stitch over one very often due to my eyesight.
    I have a floor magnifier lamp, the
    kind jewelers use - it's a lifesaver for my stitching.
    The colors you are using look great!

  4. I think you made great progress. Over one stitching is slow, but the results are so worth it. Love that pattern you started too. I don't remember seeing it around - I'm going to have to look for it. I love her patterns.

  7. I am also a nurse practitioner (family) and a certified nurse-midwife. Enjoy your blog. Very sorry for your recent loss!
    I use a Dazor floor lamp/magnifier. Once when I was struggling with an over-one a dear friend suggested I order a stronger lens to use in the Dazor....it worked like a charm! The stronger lens is too strong for "regular" work, but a life-saver for over-one.
