Skill + 1UP - 2KCBWDAY2
Now I have to say that I have come a long way, when it comes to my skills at knitting. Particularly when I look back over the past year and the patterns I decided to take on.
This is going to be relatively short, as I have already spoken about this project previous blog but I just wanted to say that I am so proud of myself for actually attempting and completing my first lace pattern...yes my black lace pashmina..
It was pretty hard doing all the YO, K2tog and all that and remembering the rows, etc. It was actually this project that made me buy my most favourite knitting tool (the row counter) - extremely useful, when doing an 8 row pattern like this one.
I've come to realise that "concentration" was/is the key with lace - at the time I wasn't sure I would attempt another lacey number but now that it's done, I'm thinking why not - maybe I'll do another one but this time in red!!!!
