Here are the three pictures again. I should omit the definite article, because they’re not the same ones.
Main side covexed to allow contrast side to be seen.
So, why ?
Because I suddenly realized what I’d done: started out using a 3.25 circular because that’s the standard when knitting with fingering weight wool. I considered the image of Samantha holding her shawl, and thought to myself – yes, more than a little late ! – “3.25 those stitches ain’t. I had best check the pattern …”
I did. It told me to use a 3.75 – two sizes up. In fact I decided to go with 4, would you believe ?: it’s the only way I can produce brioche stitches that resemble hers in any way. :\
I often wonder why I do stuff like this. I mean, not check ALL the details – and beforehand ! I said to my younger sister P on the phone that I am the original bull in the china shop, and I think that covers going at everything like a looney and not taking the time needed.
Do you observe what else I changed …?
