This is a project that I’ve been working on for a while, but has been sitting, neglected, lately. I started it in May, 2013, and have used it as an “interlude” project when I need a break from other things. Up until now, the chart has been something of a challenge, and I spent a fair amount of time “unknitting” when I got off count.
I picked it up again this week, however, and noticed that I moved through the pattern much more quickly and smoothly, and wondered what I thought was so hard. Maybe other projects have “trained” me to be more comfortable with this one? Hard to say.
This is a lace-weight yarn, and I’m still on the first skein. But, progress is being made, and I’m enjoying the journey.
Project: Wrapped Diamonds Stole, from Creative Knitting, March 2009.
Yarn: Patons Lace in color Sachet. Widely available from most yarn large-house yarn dealers.
