This week's stitch at http://pintangle.com is the Buttonhole Wheel. I realized that in my stitch book I had done some on the buttonhole page.
Next I worked the one that were experimental by doing the pink in mohair with a yellow perle cotton over it. Then the fuzzy yarn alternating half circle rows. Next came the crochet cotton in a half circle making the size increase and then decrease. I think this has real possibilities.
