The next bits.....

I'm still working on my new project and have been busy making squashed spheres in a variety of sizes and shades of green:
I'm sure you can work out what it's going to be now.......

These squashed spheres have been created by making a circle of the required size (somewhere around 48-56 dc in total), working several rounds with out increase or decrease (1-3 rounds works well) and then decreasing in the same way as I increased - the key to good increases/decreases is to stagger them otherwise you end up with more of a hexagon than a circle!! The squashed sphere is stuffed when the opening consists of 12 dc so only one more decrease round has to be worked before finishing off.
