Seventh time lucky

Okay...

So the fourth try didn't work

Or the fifth.

Or even the sixth....

But on the seventh try...
You get a crappy picture! (sorry, it's too dark outside to get a pic in the natural light with better contrast) But, I finally nailed the leaf motif! It's not the leaf motif I was planning on - I'd already considered it and then ruled it out - but it's the only one that works easily with the stitch count. And now that I've knit up the first repeat, I think it really is the best option - sometimes the knitting just knows...

I only had the chance to get one repeat done, but I'm hoping to tackle much more of it this week. I may even be on the third motif by the weekend!
