So, would you like to see it in all its stripy glory? I hope so, cos here come the photos....!
ooh, and now it's short and wrapped up.
There are three things I have learned from this project:
1) it looked best when I did only one chain at the start of each new colour change, even though I was using treble stitch (if I did two chains, it made the edge wavy - shame I only realised this half way through...)
2) I need to work out how to get all the right sides of the rows facing the same side - is this what frogging is? (Why does that word sound a bit dodgy to me?) In this project I have the rows going right side, wrong side, right side (you get the gist), but I don't think it matters as you can't see it really.
3) When you're doing stripes in highly-contrasting colours like this, I don't think weaving the ends in as you go works very well, because you can see the old colour yarn through the new colour row.
You live and learn...
It's not just me that's been a crafty bee lately either; middle nut came running out of school the other day waving this rather lovely little objet (check me out, a French word - ooh lah lah):
I'm going to leave you with this slightly dodgy photo of a lovely book cover I found the other day:
