The second photo is a better likeness of the colour of yarn I'm using. I'm on my 4th repeat of the pattern and am feeling less stressed about making mistakes. I'm getting the feel of the pattern now. 2 more repeats and I start the saddle shaping. My aim is to work one pattern repeat an evening. This is definitely not a take about pattern so I'm home bound with it.
I'm about a third of the way up on the tab button top by Debbie Bliss. Will post some photos when there's more to show. It's a tricky one to show because its just endless stocking stitch!!
