After frogging, playing with colors and reknitting, I have found an arrangement I like. It's a plan! 1011 Rocking Horse (Ride Ranke) from Dale Baby Fall 2000.
The yarn is Dale Baby Ull in red, charcoal and white and a little Silja in light and medium grays. My gauge matches the pattern using the recommended needle size, US#2. How often does that happen?
Also, replaced 2 sets of Brittany dpns due to toddler breakage. The knitting basket must now be kept constantly out of reach, even while I'm knitting. *Sigh* life with toddlers.
