knitting lace is kicking my butt lol!
I am a long time crocheter (is that a word lol) and quilter. I started knitting prayer shawls and then I knitted easy afghans and wanted to branch out to more difficult patterns.
I found a shawlette on Ravalry, read all of the reviews and looked at each project posted and decided to give it a try.
The reviews stated it was straight forward, good for a beginner project. I have never worked from a chart and the author had both written instructions and a chart, so I thought this is a good way to learn charts.
OMG!!!!! I have started over so many times I think I know the start of the pattern by heart. I have learned that, just like any other craft, experienced crafters take it for granted that the newbies know things that I do not!
My head is swimming taking the odd rows and reversing them lol!!!!!
BUT, I really am getting hooked on knitting lace.
