I managed to work through this swatch with only THREE HOLES! Ok, so there's this one area where I attempted to throw some purling in - but I ask you to overlook that. Kai Thnx!
Inspired by success, I shall be moving on to an actual "project" next. One that involves counting and accuracy. Please wish me luck as I'm not so good at counting or accuracy. In fact, if you could pray for my daughter's safety during this time of flying knitting needles that would be great.
(many thanks to CoCo the Pony as she politely models my creations)
