Knitting surgery

I’m making a shawl for my mother. Yes, I know I’ve said that before and I’ve started and stopped many, many times.  But this time, it seems to really be working.  It’s a simple lace pattern.  After a few shaky starts, I got the hang of the pattern. I ditched the stitch markers between the repeats (something I was assured would make my life easier) because the edge stitches had increases and decreases in them which make the stitch markers useless for keeping track of the pattern repeats. This is not helpful for a charted lace beginner. And believe me. I. Am. A. Beginner. Not included on the chart is the garter stitch edge, that I kept forgetting to do on the purl side.

So, I took this:

And applied this technique:

 

Which, in real life looks like this:

I really need to remember to stop using the flash.

I’m making progress.

The lovely Kit kept Keaton distracted.

Eventually I got it to look like this:

Then I did the same thing on the other side.

I might actually be able to finish this.

Fear me.

  1. That is quite something. I saw the photos on FB earlier and had no clue what it was all about.
