Things were looking so positive for finishing my Waterlily this weekend. I’d already frogged a number of times on the lace and decided to frog back the entire back panel to get to a mistake I’d made early on when I was learning the lace chart…but the trauma was over and I was in home stretch. I was determined that I would get everything left done and dusted on Sunday and could start my next project.
Or so I thought until I steam blocked the front and back panels in order to graft the shoulders and saw this:
WTF? Holy Lace Gods, why have you let me down again? What have I done to deserve this??? Well, apparently I missed a row on one side and somehow also managed to mess up the decreases on the left neck! Arrrgh!
Top shows what it SHOULD look like, and bottom is my madness:
So I frogged. Again. I don’t know what it is with me and lace sometimes. It feels as though I have a complete inability to follow charts at times… and the attention span of a gnat. Sigh.
(sorry gnats – you might even be doing better than me on this front!)
