Almost completed #5 of 14 lace 1 pattern. I've added the green stitch markers and I'll probably add more markers as the pattern grows. As I work a row between the green markers, I recount the stitches to make sure I'm on track.
My biggest fear with this project reared it's ugly head last night. While knitting at the LYS, I dropped a stitch while (un)knitting one section. I missed a YO and while fighting with a k2tog, one of the two stitches got away from me. I was lucky the stitch dropped in a non-lace section of the pattern. If it dropped anywhere else,....
I might take a break from this project and "practice" on dropped stitches by de-constructing the lace patterns. The YO sections worry me the most and I would rather tear my hair in practice than with the shawl.
Til next time
