At midnight 30th July, it looked like an amorphous blob
An amorphous blob that had an entirely incongruent navy blue strip in it. I was despondent, but didn’t give up
More knitting, with careful choice of colours, before breakfast on the 31st saw more of a smile on my face and it was cast off, washed and blocked, in readiness for taking for submission in the evening. The navy blue balances far better now, and blocking it helped to soften the colours further.
I was a bit stumped on the blocking, as the piece was over six feet long. In the end I realised I had a long worktop in the utility room. It meant chucking Lulu outside for a few hours, though.
The effort was worth it!
Lovely, isn’t it?
Now all it needs is a home to go to.
