Roses and Frog Ponds
I initially didn't follow the written instructions for the sleeve because I looked at the picture and didn't see a black/gold band at the bottom. Anne set me straight but it meant ripping back to the cuff. I'm now chugging along and I love the colour-play.
I wish I had more time to work on this! I do plan to weave in the ends as I go (every 5 inches or so) to avoid being overwhelmed with ends when I'm near completion.
I also charted the design on Stitch and Motif Maker. When I look at a chart and see a black square I automatically process it as the darker colour. For some reason here, the darker shades are represented by the lighter squares so I was not zipping along until I laid out the chart as I see it in my mind.
