Can you see the difference between the two?
What the pattern should have said for me (knowing I need more info than most) is to begin my next row to the right side (not right side of the fabric) and not the left side. Making the scales going right to left. That makes a difference in the way your 'scales' lay (or is it lie?). When made, the right side the scale (as in RS) is laying flat on top of the fabric. The part that will be viewed is actually the BACK of the 'scale.' You can tell by the way to top of your stitches look. As you all know when you crochet, the last loop will be in a position of "looking at you" and so when you turn your work, you can't really see the top of the stitch too well…just the back loop.
I knew when I finished the booty that something was different about the way I was making it, but could not put my finger on it until I messed around with "dissecting" the 'scales' to see how they looked. If you make it backwards, like I did for all the gauntlets, they curl upward. Especially with the type of yarn I was using (Vanna's Glamour).
I have already started making the new gauntlets for the little one and will make another set for the older one. They most likely won't even notice that they are different, but as they grow like weeds by the time I am finished, the first set I made will be too little for Amy Jo!
My DSD (their mom) brought back some lovely gifts from Sitka, AK for me. That is where she and her hubby grew up. They take the girls every year and the little ones are getting to where they want to stay there, too! :o(
The tote is from the yarn store there in Sitka, called Knitting with Class. I am not sure about the lotion and essential oils.
Then there is the bath ball…one of those super delightful things that fizzes in the tub while you soak!
Am looking forward to using it after the bathroom is refurbished. Can't use the old tub now. Too little, too short, and the tiles surrounding it are coming out.
Lots of work to be finished!
