…knitting lace (or lace knitting…whatever) can be very frustrating.
Yesterday afternoon all was well, life was good – RR had gone to the Rhinebeck junk sale with my Dad, Dobby was working and the house was quiet.Â I finished (or, I thought I did) the last repeat of Chart A on Moth.Â I decided to take some outdoor photos on the patio:
I then began (and completed) the reverse stockinette ridge prior to Chart B and started Chart B.Â Which is roughly where everything went to sh*t.Â It is also where I realized that when the instructions say to repeat the chart 14 times MORE that means FIFTEEN times TOTAL….dammit.
So I had five or six rows of 340ish stitches that I needed to tink…or rip out. Â I don’t have the patience for the tinking…so (after a Cadbury egg and an offer of a shot of whiskey from RR) out came the needles.
…fifteen minutes later Moth was back on the needles and ready to go:
Â I only dropped one stitch ;o)
