There no longer is any yarn to work off the outside of the second ball. Though there is a little on the 1st ball, that was before colour blending. I anticipate completely fresh yarn soon.
I really like how this is working up.
I'm following the pattern, more or less. You know how it is. Once you understand a thing, you tweek it to be perfect.
With just a little luck, my tweeking is behind me on this design and it will be clear sailing down and over the bum, and on through the legs, ending in a nice wee pair of baby socks.
I'm looking forward to the cuteness of it.
