Rounds 1-4 sat flat.
Rounds 5-8 would sit flat if they weren't connected to the centre 4 rounds.
At Round 8 it is approximately 28cm diameter.
7 and 8 are 'similar' in the mathematical sense that one is an enlargement of the other and mirrored. These two rounds are also the first that needed two shuttles.
It took few repeats before I could stop looking at the pattern for round 7.
Doing round 8 it took longer to stop looking as the order of components was the same but the number of stitches was different.
It has taken longer to do these rounds than the previous - they were harder, and it is getting further around - but not as long as you might think from the gap since my last post.
My tablet computer which I use to take the photos keeps not wanting to upload to the net.
