I finally started work on the “long long lacy gloves” pattern from Lace Style by Allen and Budd. I worked on the lace cuff from mid afternoon until bed time off and on, and only completed two and a half repeats. I frogged and tinked so many times that the yarn started to fray. I have to have this pair done by the first Tuesday in April so that I can enter them in the Charlotte Knitting Guild 1st annual contest. I am starting to wonder if I can do it.
(a few hours later)
I’m up to 5 repeats of the pattern now. Two more repeats and I’ll be done with the basic structure of the cuff. Here are some Work in Progress pix…
I’ll take a moment to thank the unknown knitters who thought up the “safety cord” for use in knitting. It saved my sanity last night when I had to rip that third repeat back 6 times. By the way, this is a newish (I think) yarn of the brand name of Yummy.
