In The Green
Here's a little more progress on Crocus.
I've separated the Opal from the purple with a couple of rows of reverse stocking stitch. It gives a nice raised ridge, adding a bit of texture.
I've done the same with the green - I think this will be a repeated design feature - separating each colour change with those ridges.
The Opal has almost made fair-isle patterns - the repeats don't quite line up, but I don't mind. It adds a quirky randomness to it. And as I am working on a less structured approach to my life, so quirky randomness fits right in with my new philosophy of "go with the flow".
Not long ago I would have ripped and redone, ripped and redone, and if it wasn't absolutely perfect, I would have given up.
Now, it is what it is. Accept. Breathe. Be.
