Knitter of this Lyra is Rosemarie Buchanan, of Lethbridge, Alberta (that's me, the editor of this blog!). This Lyra is showing the bellybutton from the wrong side. The fine thread in the upper left corner is Size 20 cotton, and it's there to show how fine my wool is. The strand of blue wool will be used to pick up the blue stitches on the bellybutton. The bellybutton will be (ever-so-carefully!) cut off the centre of the Lyra, and the circle will be cinched up. At the time of this writing (July 20/05) I am on round 129, with about 50 rounds to go. My Lyra will be square when it's completed. I have pink or blue stitch markers to separate the pattern sections, and white stitch markers to separate the four corners, just to keep me on track! Posted by Picasa
