bigger all the time
The original version didn't have the lace inserts between the Vs of leaves (or really they look like little trees), it had a textured panel instead. Totally didn't work for me. The original also didn't have the scalloped edge, which I love in the new version!
I also decided to do a second version in the lovely Bliss sock from Saffron Dyeworks. The colorway is Noble, and it's a perfect grey. Dee also sent some beads to go with. Yum!
I started this one with a plain stockinette section between the rows of little trees. I love the way the center of the stockinette section worked out. Sometimes (often?) plain is just perfect.
This one is all fun, since I worked out the chart the first time through, along with a great way to simplify the instructions that I hope you'll love! It saves you from having to look at monstrously huge charts. Back to knitting for me! (And I promise to tell you more about the boat a little bit later).
