Oh my goodness. My first experience with lace. A few tips for anyone about to embark on this slow road to insanity:
If you have an option of lace weight vs. fingering (or even DK), go heavy!!!
One word: LIFELINE. Thanks to dear ol’ Options, it’s not so bad. But don’t think you’re so good at concentrating that you can get away with twenty or thirty rows in between your first time around. You can’t. Especially not if you have small children or pets.
But on to my questions. I looked through the “lace tips” thread on this forum, but I’m having trouble finding any internet source of tips. Any brilliant suggestions for general tips on lace?
Also, has anyone else done the Flower Basket shawl by Fiber Trends? I have had the, ah, privelege of working the first seven rows about twenty times now, and they never seem to improve. When it says “rotate the work” to knit through the garter ridges, what exactly does that mean? Because it’s looked like dookie all twenty times.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,
