Decided to try lace , once again. I have had a couple of runs at lace before and always gave up after a few attempts. No matter how careful I try to be, after a few rows I invariably end up with more stitches than I am supposed to have. I know theoretically how it is supposd to work = decreases eventually neutralise the yo's, or something like that. But it never seems to work out. The same thing happened last night, and it is just a simple scarf with fingerweight yarn. I dont get it. Now, I am not abnormally stupid, and I can count, and I never thought myself a careless knitter, but perhaps I am all three and just never realised it!!! Frog Pond again.
I will try again, eventually. Just needed a place to blow. Thanks guys.
