Does perfect lace exist? I finally found the nerve, purchased a really fine mohair/silk blend yarn, and cast on to knit a simple pattern of diagonal 'holes' across a narrow scarf.
I'm doing well overall, but there have been problems, which I've been able to 'fix' by picking up yarn for missed yarn overs, by adding stitches when necessary, or decreasing when I mysteriously had too many stitches.
Even though the fixed spots stand out like a sore thumb to me, overall the lacey effect is pleasing, and the piece does look very nice.
I am trying my best, but errors to happen. Should I set lace aside forever, men? Or continue to fix as necessary, and just enjoy the knitting? Does it ever get easier to follow those patterns?
Does perfect lace exist?
Thanks for any input!
