Knitting Right Along

Hello Everyone!

I'm Vera, and I won a copy of the Mt. Stream Scarf pattern from Susan. I haven't done much lacework, but this scarf is so lovely, and I need a challenge.

Here's what I have so far.

I've completed four body repeats on the scarf. I did have to frog back several rows to correct a mistake, and while the correction is not perfect (I actually corrected the mistake, but while tinking, dropped a couple of stitches, and didn't fix it right), I can live with it.

I'm using Knit Picks Shadow in the Oregon Coast colorway. I had started the scarf with Crystal Place Kid Merino, but the yarn kept clumping up around the nylon string, and that annoyed me, so while it was pretty, I gave up after one body repeat.

I'm starting to feel comfortable with the pattern now. I wish I has more "lace sense" to see more quickly when I make a mistake, but I know when the boarders begin and end, and I keep close count.

My goal is to do at least two more repeats today.

That looks great and you can really see the pattern without blocking!

Must make it easier to "read" your knitting.

Looking good, you really can see the pattern nicely.

I made a kiri shawl with the CP kid merino...I will never use that stuff again. The fuzz traveled around the main core, and made one big clump. Ugh...

It looks wonderful, Vera. I just made a shawl from the Knit Picks yarn. Don't you just love it.

Lovely, Vera. I too won a copy of the pattern from Susan and have yet to start mine. I'd better get hopping.

Oh, thank god. I thought the problems with the Kid Merino were just me and wonky tension. Glad to know that it happens to others!
