I really enjoy the moments before and when I have first started a new project in large part because of the potential of the knit. It's the anticipation of something wonderful, as yet untainted by human frailty! Francis Revisited has so much promise, I hope the simplicity of it means that I can live up to my own expectations. As you may remember this smug overachiever swatched aeons ago for this (which has been the next project for far too long), though my halo slipped a little as I didn't recalculate the maths to allow for my different row gauge ahead of time. There is only one place in the pattern that seems to be dependant on the number of rows knit rather than just measurements so it was really not the most onerous task to adjust it, but I still owe thanks to the beloved and Mrs Lurker for their assistance. Now it should just be onwards with simple stocking stitch in the round, dreaming of its potential.
