Laura is helping ladies at Serendipity with this lace knit along. As I talked her into designing a pattern and getting people excited about lace knitting on Saturday mornings I knew I better get going on my knit along.
So first I picked out my favorite color of yarn, its lace weight by Spud and Chloe. That part was easy, then I cast on the recommended 53 stitches on some size five wooden needles. There might of been my first mistake, I ripped that out twice, the first time because my stitches were not adding up, second time was because the fabric I was creating was way to loopy. I must of been loopy when I picked up size 5's. That gave me a new excuse to buy a pair of the square needles all the sock knitters in the store have been raving about. So with a shining new pair of size 3's (which I LOVE) I once again cast on the recommended 53 stitches. It is foggy how many times I have ripped back and unknitted-I think I might of even said some inappropriate words a few times. I so want to be a lace knitter like Laura, Cathy, Mary Beth, and all the Saturday morning knitters. I have set a goal to become better at lace and I will preserver. Wish me luck and you can always ask to see it when you drop by the store. That way I will keep at it so it won't be the same size every time you come in :). Keep knitting
