Thanks for lovely comments on my previous post! I'm so childish it makes me especially happy to read positive words about Siri Derkert: her art means so much to me I almost take praise for her personally!
WonderMike: yes, it would be wonderful living closer to you. But why don't you come up and see me some time? ;-)
Rod: ha ha - well, I actually gained 12 kilos (26½ pounds) but have lost half of it, not planning to lose any more.
Ann: thanks! Well, the difference in gauge makes quite a difference. I use 3 mm needles (US 2½) for both projects, but in this one I get 22 stitches/10 cm (4 in) and 37 in the twined project!
Edited to add: better photo of the print here. Thanks Annie for pointing it out!
