You see this thing that looks like a sock toe in the middle of my Lady E?
That's what happens if you incorporate the rectangle on the wrong side of the stitches you've picked up into your new rectangle. A few days ago I praised this pattern to Elizabeth as one that's easy enough not have to think about, but sufficiently interesting to make sure you keep on track. Well, I stand by that statement - with the proviso that if you're reading something really really interesting and are bored of your Lady Eleanor and wish you could spend just a little time knitting something else but stop yourself from doing so because you are knitting Lady E to deadline, then it's a good idea to check said knitting occasionally.
Clearly it would have been better to let myself knit something else. Then I might have had a start on my Picovoli or swatch for Cinxia, rather than this:
That's seven-rectangles-and-one-triangle worth of yarn.
And you want to know something really impressive? As soon as I picked up those stitches I did it again.
