Lace is my nemesis.

 

Lacy Sampler Scarf in Progress

I hate lace.  Correction.  I hate knitting lace.  So every year I try to do at least ONE lace project.  This year I’m attempting the Lacy Sampler Scarf using Tahki’s Superior yarn, which is a lovely blend of cashmere and silk, and very fine.  The pattern is free on their website.  I had some issues with it as at first I couldn’t make heads or tails of the process, and there are no charts.  After visiting Ravelry and reading others’ notes, I think I have it figured out.

So far I’ve  tinked a few rows, but then in the wee hours of the morning I had to frog about 8 rows.  I thanked myself over and over for pulling a life-line through every once in awhile.  At least I only had to go back to that and not start completely over, which I would have done had I not had it in.  But the very best part is that I get to use my beautiful Signature needle with the ‘stiletto’ points!  They’re definitely pricey, but so worth it working with this type of yarn.  So I’m on the second part of the sampler now, and while I’m not loving this particular lacework, I’ll keep working on it.
