Go round and round - don't they? So why am I surprised to find myself writing this having just pulled back my Sheep Carousel knitting to the beginning of the pattern?
I had got halfway up the pattern - to where the body of the higher of the two sheep starts, when I sat and looked at the work.
Horror of horrors, I found my steeks were not symmetrical. That is, one was where it should be - after 4 sheep patterns - but the next one (which should have been exactly opposite) was five patterns away. Thus I would need a severely deformed teapot in order to actually use the cosy.
So I am back to this stage...
Ah well, it could have been worse - I might have found out when I had cut the steeks and went to put the teacosy on its (Symmetrical) pot!
