Project

Diamond Swatch

What are you most proud of? Both side seams are closed! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the time to listen to Alasdair's ribbon analogy. I kept creating flaws in my project until I figured out you really MUST keep the two yarn strands in the correct orientation. For Continental knitters, try a yarn stranding guide. (They only cost about $1.19!) Each time I needed to twist the "ribbon" (i.e., the two yarn strands), I slipped the yarn stranding guide off my finger, rotated it 180 degrees, and slipped it back on.
