I have been fighting with my knitting for the past three days.
I am not a happy knitter. I might be obsessed, but I am determined to crack this pattern. So far I have knitted it and ripped out again at least 7 times.
I am working on Madeira Cascade Lace from Barbara G. Walker stitch dictionary. I decided that it will make a perfect skirt for the baby. The pattern is open and airy, and I am fascinated by the medallion structure that shapes the skirt. Unfortunately I have been stuck on Round 7 for the last two days.
I will admit. It is probably my own fault. I am doing something wrong there… Or maybe I am over ambitious and this is not the time to attempt a complicated lace pattern. I do not know… Of course, it might just be all this wonderful people (DH, kids, people on the phone, did I mention DH) keep interrupting me. It gone on until I am not sure who I am, forget how many stitches into the pattern repeat that SSK is supposed to be.
And then there is that little thing that, being me, I am, of course, modifying this pattern. I am NOT about to Purl or put a seam into MY skirt.
OK, kids and DH seem to be busy, baby is sleeping, time to try again.
P.S. The one bright spot today was the package with my beads. It’s finally here! So far I am resisting their little voices calling me to play with them. I have to get this lace puzzle solved. Then, all bets are off!
