What I learned:
- Print the chart in color, you may miss some colored borders that emphasize repeats.
- Read the chart carefully, there may be a row that does not repeat the YO of the previous rows and you end up with additional stitches which can be pretty frustrating.
- Don't knit the lace pattern while watching a movie where you need to pay attention otherwise you will miss the whole story or while thinking of an answer to some probing questions by the daughter.
On the other hand, knit the middle part of this shawl exactly at those moments. Contrary to many knitters, I really enjoyed the middle part, it was a great tag along project.
Today may be the last day that I can wear a warm woolen shawl as it is cool and rainy in San Diego. And I am wearing it with a smile.
