Lace Meadow baby blanket

IMG_20131121_140948This 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!
