I branched out! :-)
I finished the Branching Out lace scarf! I’m really pleased with myself that I persevered with this. I gave it a quick dunk into Eucalan and pinned it out on a dressmaker’s board on the patio, but I see now that if I go any further in lace knitting, I will want to own a blocking board and maybe even wires, because even this small thing grew a lot and the board isn’t really big enough to do it justice.
There is one major error in my knitting, but let that be a testimony to my own imperfection! I am delighted with my first real lace! I am inspired to try bigger and scarier things!
