Today I finally finished the bottom lace edging of the Pine Tree Palatine Scarf from the 'Gossamer Webs Design Collection' by Galina Khmeleva for Interweave.
The edging calls for 23 repeats - leading to 23 teeth (points). I have taken my time with this because I so did NOT want to mess up.
I was feeling trepidation about the next stage, probably another factor on taking my time with the edging. Although I had knit up the sample in the beginning of the book, I knew after that much edging if I fuffed up it would be heartbreaking.
Today I bit the bullet.....
I've got a few more plan garter stitch, centre panel, rows before the main body of the lace starts. I ordered a new magnifying ruler with a red marker line today, the charts are small and I have over 700 rows at 181 centre panel stitches to go.....I think I may need that ruler. Also will be placing a suicide line!!!
This may take me some time to finish but hey that's the bonus of lace weight it lasts forever.
