I chose Eveleen to slow me down a bit…..
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately!!) I’m really enjoying the lace pattern and have got quite quick at it!
I’ve now done enough repeats so I can look at the pattern at the beginning of a RS row then memorize it all the way to the end of the row without looking back at the pattern. The WS rows I have in my head now (mainly because they are easy knits and purls with no “funny” lace stuff…)
A big improvement on the “knit 2 stitches ,look at the pattern, get lost where I was, count the stitches, look at the pattern, knit 2 more stitches” way Eveleen started.
Here’s how far I’ve got with the back….
Yup! I’ve finished the lace section up to the bust 🙂
I thought, “I can can carry on with the plain part or stop here and do the front’s lace section while I have the pattern (partially) lodged in my head”. So, I’ve put this back on a spare needle and I’m this far up the front…
I am so pleased!!
The lace is even prettier now I have a larger amount of it dangling off the needle and I can spread it out better…
So much for slowing me down, huh?
I’m now racing through it so I can get onto the intarsia fun!
