Progress, Complaints, Frustrations
I have been working on Isabella for most of the day and have made quite a bit of progress. The lace pattern is going well except for the matched decreases, especially the Slip 1, K2together, Slip Stitch over (there is this huge gap that is super frustrating!!!)
I have never worked Jordana Paige pattern before and I am not finding her directions very helpful. I think she makes things more complicated then they need to be or I am just never a very good pattern reader (I'm sure it is me, and not her). The 4-ply cotton (or rather cotton in general) is not very forgiving. As the title of my blog states I Knit and Rip and I have done that about 5 times in the lace panel alone. It is very frustrating and time consuming. But I can't seem to let things go, except of course the weird space next to the decrese on the right side (I ripped and it didn't fix the problem so I left it. I'm hoping blocking will help. LOL).
I do hope the rest of it goes well. Wish me luck!
