Matching those colours was a problem, but I adapted, the swatch once painted, was cooked in the microwave in a plastic steamer for 10 minutes.
unravelling the skein into 2 balls was a challenge, but Blaise and I each wrangled an end and with the help of two ballwinders we managed to subdue the yarn.
So, it seems - if you knit something in the flat, well....you can't then go on and knit in the round... and expect it to look the same...duh!
I knitted 1/2 a sock while in Paris, just to feel I had - and the colours are very lovely, very Monet - just not very anything at all like a painting!
That sock is now unravelled, and the balls are waiting, waiting to be incorporated into a flat price of knitting in order to reveal their true nature. I am certain the right project will come along eventually.
No time to get bogged down with that now, there is still Christmas knitting to complete:
this watchcap for my uncle
a pattern for the Liam (wolf in sheeps clothing) sweater to finish
Horatio is finished, as is the pattern
