Swatching was complete, so yesterday evening I cast on for Green Gable...the backward loop cast on is recommended, for a nice stretchy boatneck....after reading several posts about it on the knitalong, I surmised that backward loop is just another name for the single cast on. It was not fun purling into all those inelastic, splitty loops of cotton, lovely as the yarn is...but I managed, and was working merrily through part A, when I discovered this.
Yikes! Big mess up front (and Arrow hairs on the couch)
Please excuse the dark photo, but what is that big loopy mess up front? And how did it happen? Yech! So alas, I will have to rip it out and do that backward loop thing again with the unforgiving cotton. *Sigh*
At least there are pretty flowers to look at...more fragrant freesia planted by Dan...
Sweet smelling freesia, this time in yellow and red
and a beautiful centerpiece from Jess and Tony's wedding!
