I frogged it last night and started all over again today on smaller sized needles, I like what I have here on the msaller needles:

First I have it laying over 2 different colored surfaces so you can see the lace work.

Very pretty. Working with the lace type patterns is hard for me.

I frogged my falling water lace scarf last night to start on larger needles. Forget the gauge. I can't seem to get the hang of needles below size 6 right now. It took me trying over and over and over to get to that small and compared to sizes 0-4, 6 seems large. LOL.

Merry Knitter,

Thank You!

I see you live in Ohio also! ( Go Bengals ! AND U.C.Bearcats! )

No Pattern, Just Garter Stitch.

And the yarn is 100% Egyptian Cotton. ( Soft just like the sheets & Towels ) I buoght it on E-Bay from MCY ( Mystical Creative Yarns ) Put MCY in and it will bring up all of the MCY that Danielle has. Her family dyes the yarn themselves.

Beautiful and not expensive
