I decided to cast on a new project for my plane ride tomorrow. I had a shawl going, and was going to bring that. But I realized this morning that I’d made a serious mistake and needed to frog the whole thing. 😦 After my last knitting fail, I decided to ditch the project before I wasted any more time on it!
So I started fresh with the Spring Trellis Shawl pattern, and some yummy brown lace yarn I found in my stash. This is a charted lace pattern.
I prefer knitting lace from charts. I find it is easier to keep my place and easier to follow along. But sometimes I get mixed up when I look at the symbols, and read them incorrectly. So whenever I start a new pattern, I prep it by getting out my colored pencils. I’ve found I can easily remember that green means K2tog!
Then I cast on the first itty bit, and now I’m all set to go!
