An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Something that has bothered me vaguely about the tulip pattern (scroll down to previous post) is that when the knitting is folded to make a bag, part of it will be upside down. I assured myself that that didn't matter, but it nagged at me none the less. This morning I had a brainwave - knit part of it upside down, so that it's the right way up when folded! I confess that I thought the flap would be upside down, but when I folded the tulips realised that it is the back part of the bag that would be reversed. Hmm. I was prepared to undo two rows of flowers to redo the flap, but not four rows. I'll have to start over. Thinks, thinks, I've decided to do the three parts of the bag in the same colour order, rather than the random arrangement of the first one. Now I have 'It'll be just like starting over' singing loudly in my head.
