Well after switching to Team Chocolate, and after much waffling on my part, I finally frogged all the way back to the beginning of the color work and re-did it with the black as the lower (left hand) strand
I am SO glad I did! The lines look so much cleaner now. Who would think it would make that much of a difference? Whew! I'm glad I didn't take it all out for nothing! I'm not sure how well you can tell from the pictures, partly because the before picture is washed out, but trust me, it looks better :)
I know it doesn't look like I've done all that much, but you gotta remember I have knitted it all twice lol. And that I designed that Josephine's Knot myself.
Also, that I had 2 kids with birthday parties and cakes to decorate this week.
And that you cannot do colorwork and watch Survivor at the same time.
I think I've almost mastered knitting with my right hand now, too. I finally figured out how to wrap without letting go of the right hand needle, or feeling like I'm going to drop it. It's still much slower than my left, but it feels like something I can manage.
Woohoo, gold medal here I come!
