I have been knitting up a storm:
This is all brand new knitting since the last post. I started over from the beginning. Now there are two complete reps of the zig zag panel, and there are exactly four in the piece, so I am halfway.
I am pretty sure there was an error in the instructions for the top of the paisley motif. The instructions for Row 45 read "P5, C3FP, C2BP, p15." They should read "P6, C2FP, C2BP, p15." That's what I did, and this is how it looks:
If you followed the printed instructions you would start the cable too soon, and it wouldn't finish to a clean point.
I think I saw this pattern republished in a Debbie Bliss magazine, and I don't know if they fixed the error in that.
It is a pet peeve of mine that Debbie Bliss never provides charts for her cables or lace. If she had, this error would have been avoided!
This week I also upgraded to the new Corel Paintshop Pro X4 photo software. I am finding it easier to use than the X3, and much less buggy. Plus, the manuals that come with it are better, so I finally figured out how to use the text tool properly. You will be seeing labels on my photos from now on! It is a good deal for $40.
