Lace and other projects
I'm glad that I have read loads of tips on knitting lace, most importantly, how to use lifelines. I had just finished the first repeat of the pattern and was counting and recounting stitches, when I saw IT. A dropped stitch. That had unraveled several rows. My heart stopped. At this point, I am such a novice lace knitter that I chose to frog back to the lifeline. All is well now and I have started the second repeat. Clapotis is moving along well. I have started the second skein and have fallen victim to the classic dilemma of hand painted yarns. They don't match. Take a look at the pictures from the beginning of the scarf compared to the end by the needle. The teal is much more prominent in the second skein and is pooling horrendously. However as this FO will not stay at my house, I think I can live with it.
It also touches a nerve because I CANNOT tolerate scarves that are not reversible, such as My So Called Scarf. While the front is amazing - the stitch pattern is simple beyond belief, but what a pretty fabric, the back is booooriiiiing. But again, this is not staying here, so I will suck it up.
