Sally the Seductress...and her nails.
The day was absolutely flawless. Crystal blue skies and no fog in site, which is a rare commodity in this coastal town. The beaches were packed with sun worshippers from all around the bay area. Sally found it hard to part with this beautiful day and so she continued to sunbathe on her front porch. Reading Claire Garland's new book Dream Toys and a manicure was all Sally needed to make this a perfect day. Her feet and hands were knitted as indicated in the book with a few changes. As you get to toward the last 6 rows increase by one, then two stitches to create the widening of the hands. For her toes, I also single crocheted on the last row to add a more rounded edge. Alittle beige color thread to define the edges of the toes and fingers, optional but helps to flatten them. Felting small pieces of pink roving to round circles on the hands and feet make a dimentional surface for the nails. If you look closely, Sally's nose is felted too to a petite round mound. A few stitches to the back of the ankes allow her feet to look more natural. The ideas are countless of what you can create with the knitted babes!
