A simple lace pattern for my first go.
Well, first go apart from the aborted shawl (don't ask!)
but lace is hard!
It's hard because you have to concentrate on where you are in the pattern and it's easy to lose your place. Thank goodness for post it notes and how did our great grandmother's manage with gas and candle light? a good light is essential especially as it's impossible to do this with a 3 yr old under your feet so it's an after K's bedtime project which means tired eyes before i even begin.
Starting at the point seemed a great idea at first as the pattern was growing really quickly wich is good for the confidence, but after only 4 repeats the rows are taking a L-O-N-G time now and I am wondering how large this project will manage to get before i cast off and pretend it was a dolls shawl all along VBG
