Once again, I bought too much yarn. The recent shawl, le Papillion, needed less than one ball of Louise Harding Amitola and half a skein of the Baah. That's a lot of left over yardage.
This is a two-row lace pattern. At first I struggled.
The lace bit is simple. But for some reason I could not "see" the thing in my mind (there is no chart - the repeat being just seven stitches of not much) and not being able to see the whole thing messed me up.
Now, I am so busy wondering when the color of the Amitola will change again that I can't put the thing down. It is actually much farther along than the photo indicates. I'll probably never wear this one and it is not appropriate for a chemo cap due to the fibers and the holes. But I love it! I'm hooked.
Oh, wait. I can't be hooked on this yarn/pattern combo because this is knitting - not crochet. Let's just say I'm needling along at a quick pace.
