I am working on the Aran Coat from Knitting Around. This is knit from Sheepsdown from Schoolhouse Press. Its a very thick wool that has a lot of lanolin. I started this early summer (I know...what was I thinking using such thick wool at that time of year?) and at some point I was frustrated because the sheepfold pattern was not in a mirror image as I knit. So...I put this project aside and let it simmer. I took it out about a week ago and decided to figure out how to mirror image the pattern. It only took me a few minutes to figure it out so I wonder why it took me so long to pick this project back up again.
Here are photos of the before: See how the pattern is just repeated?
Here is a scary photo. This is where I "un-did" that portion of the main body down to the first row so that I could re-knit it so the two panels would be mirror images of one another.
Now here is the re-knit version. I had to do this to two panels on the main body and on one sleeve!
Isn't that much better??
