I killed the doily. Worked on it for a couple hours last night while on migraine meds, woke up this morning, looked at it, and couldn't figure out WHAT the hell was going on. This is it before I pulled it off the needle:
Not to worry, I wasn't quite up to round fifty, and I learned a lot about how this guy's mind thinks. I'm gonna give it another shot, just not right now. 'Cause I've figured out what cable knit I am gonna do (really a twisted-stitch pattern if you discern between the two), and am doing the swatch.
And I've started spinning up the yarn for the next Zen project.
I'll try not to do this on migraine drugs. Ha.
