Lacey Knitting Skills...
Well, I have to admit to struggling with what I thought was going to be relatively easy... my new lace weight shawl! Apparently it is a whole new skill set working with feather light lace weight yarn and keeping one's stitches soft and airy... whew,
what was I thinking?!
I have ripped and knitted and ripped and knitted and ripped and ripped and ripped, well I've actually lost track of how many times I've had to rip and start all over but now I think I've got the idea of the pattern. I've never worked with a chart before either so another learning curve there and although this last time of ripping at first I thought I had finally gotten it. Well, I did in one manner, I had gotten the rhythm and the soft and airy stitches finally but I'd been reading the chart all wrong so nothing left to do but rip again!
Since I don't have anything to show you on my progress at this point I thought I would just bring a few ideas to perhaps inspire some of you to try your hand at this lace weight thing! :D And yes, I too am an enabler :D
Oh my gosh isn't the one on the left amazing, well, they are all amazing but the one on the left... yum!
