Finished the silly thing. K3P2K3P2K3P2....
That Cleckheaton Country Tartan 8ply is not bad stuff. Not completely black. But black enough.
Here's where I got up to on my first All You Need Is Love gLove. Took me a while to decide whether to do the white or blue background, but I'm glad I picked white. It's easier to follow the chart when white is white.
See that odd square on the left? Pattern problem. It's where the start and end of the chart meet, only it's a spiral, of course, and when you get to the start again you're a row higher. Will fix that later with some duplicate stitch, and do the other one a bit differently.
Here is 434g of merino ready for the Tour de Fleece! The idea is to 'spin' with the cyclists on the Tour de France, each day from July 2-24 (with days off on the 11th and 18th). This yarn, and the 300g I recently got from EGMTK, will have to hold me until July 15, when I get some more from the Bendigo Sheep and Wool Festival. It's my annual day off!! I'm also going to look into a small loom to play with.
