...suffice it to say that the air was blue, I took it all back to the band on four occasions , and had an email conversation with Rebecca from Ysolda dot com and still was VERY TEMPTED to throw the whole thing in the bin! But I don't like to be beaten and, although I never managed to finish a row with the same stitches that the pattern said, in the end I just winged it and made it up.
It is still in the blocking stage, and I think I may have just discovered the 'plate cover' - the 'dernier cri' in kitchenalia!
The yarn is by Quince and is 75% wool and 25% silk. A bit floppy maybe, but I'll have to see what it looks like on.
I took these pictures early this morning, when everything looked just beautiful with the sun coming up and the mists still hanging in the valleys...
You can tell it's going to be another beautiful day!
