Oh I am so stupid - I've just gone back and reread Eunny's blog for setting up the steeks and she says exactly what Marina says ie the border stitches should be in the background colour. If only I'd checked that again before I did it. I was just too excited and eager to have a go. Still, at least I've learnt what not to do!
I don't suppose it's the end of the world and don't think it's worth ripping back what I've done - is it?
I was going to start on the sleeves but think I'll leave that for another day. I'd better pay attention this time!
