The Princess moves forward so well that my current favoured-option to deal with the inadvertent offset of the pattern, is to go forward as the pattern as now set; the ultimate dog-leg. I think when I finish the 7th repeat, in a couple of days, the thing will be to spread it out for photography and then leave it there a day for contemplation – and see what you guys think. I can always work on the Tilted Blocks scarf from “Knitting New Scarves” – we’d almost forgotten about that one.
Clare G., I had a lot of fun with the palette generator and have earmarked it in the “Knitting Ideas and Thots” section of my Favorites list. I agree, yesterday’s angel emerges disappointingly from the process; Vermeer’s Milkmaid, surprisingly, isn’t much better. But Edith Sitwell – again, from yesterday -- does rather well.
(The Milkmaid was Shan’s idea. Visiting her blog just now to establish the link, I have been sold on “A Fine Fleece”. Maybe I’m not too old to learn to spin, and meanwhile there are wonderful patterns there.)
I’m beginning to fear that I may have to use Shetland yarn after all, for the sake of the generous choice of colours.
Kathie, I am very glad I was spared the sight of Mrs Palin winking at the camera. We could have seen the whole debate last night (a day after the event) but I eschewed it.
