Plodding on

Still knitting lace. I think I need a tripod! On repeat 22 only 26 more to go, nearly half way, nearly half way, keep teling myself nearly half way :o) Bored of the 8 row pattern repeat but happy with how it's turning out so far.

I keep looking at the photo in the book and thinking to myself - it'll be worth it. Maybe something more comlicated would be 'easier' if that makes sense! But I have the hang of the pattern and can tell straight away if I am going wrong. Famous last words... I estimate another week of this central panel before I move on to the edging. Plod. Plod. Plod.

I have also cast on for a Snowflake cardi for DD2 just as an easy pattern to have around during the day. Bright pink, ss no shaping, fluffy, silly yarn which doesn't show the stitches.

I love the look of the Gothic yarn. It's going to be stunning when it's finished. Worth all the boredom!!

I'll be interested to see the pattern you picked for the Snowflake too!
