Thanks Artlady! I will play around with it. So far I'm just doing stockinette with the dark purple. I like it.
uh-oh, the bottom has rolled. I guess garter stitch doesn't make a good border this way:
You can see when I pull it down how much is not showing:
So now I have another question. What if I were to cast off the dark purple, turn the whole thing around, and cast on at bottom of light purple (where my fingers are) and continue in that direction.
Then, when I get to the border, do something other than garter stitch. I wonder what might make a good border: k3p3 rib? or seed stitch? .....something?
BUT: if I cast off at dark purple, will I need a border there too?
