Relief!

I can't express how great a feeling it was to rip out Sarcelle, put away the ridiculously small needles for such thin yarn and pull out a new pattern and start over. I really love the Print o Wave Stole by Eunny even though I left it tinking back the first row on the second repeat! It is a much simpler pattern to learn on and I have raced through (my measure being when I surpassed the length of the yarn I had ripped out from Sarcalle) and even though it's only an inch long, I can see that I could finish this.

Sarcelle looked like maybe I never would even pick it back up again.

Although I should not knit lace at 7 in the morning. And I should remember this and work on the many socks in progress instead.

I feel like I should have a knitting new year's resolution.

You are going to have to post a tutorial on this...
or at least some pictures.
I've never seen knitted lace before... only crocheted or Tatted.

I can do better!

Here is Eunny's Blog:

The Print o the Wave Stole is a free pattern on the side bar. She also has some very detailed tutorials on how to knit lace. It's just lots of knitting stitches together and yarn overs using like 2 ply yarn.
