This was my first foray into lace knitting and I found it to be bloomin hard work! I was following the Lace Meadow pattern by Estelle Macdonald (available for free on Ravelry), and I can’t tell you how many times I had to unpick my rows having found that my lacey holes were one stitch out! I can’t fault the pattern – no, the problem lies at my own door. Knitting anything more complicated than a flannel, watching Strictly, supervising the Small Boy and stirring pasta was never going to work out.
Anyway, all’s well etc. Blanket now busy wrapping up a sweet new babe and I am really happy with the result!
