Some Progeress at Last
So, funny thing: I plodded through the first 2 or 3 repeats of the lattice portion of the pattern (I'm making the asymmetrical version) with the suggested markers in place, but I wasn't really enjoying knitting the pattern. Then last week I took the markers out, and now I love it! Turns out the markers were somehow keeping me from reading the lace I'd already knitted (which meant I had to look at the printed pattern more), and also made me feel like the rows were really long. Weird, huh?
And then I spent all day yesterday traveling, and made all kinds of progress. I'm trying to decide if I want to lengthen it or not--I'm tall, and have kind of wide shoulders--so I may block what I have so far in the next few days.
