Tzarina has reached that exciting stage. You know the one...the stage in the knitting of an unfamiliar garment when you have no clue. The construction hasn't yet gelled in the mind so all one can do is blindly follow the pattern. I've joined the two pieces, picked up where I'm supposed to and put the required number of stitches on holders. I'm working merrily back and forth on the remaining 98 as instructed, and have no idea whatever how it will turn out. It doesn't even look like anything to me yet. What fun! Such drama! Can't wait to see how it all comes together.
