:!!!:I'm working on Ene's Scarf from Scarf Style. It's SUPPOSED to be an xmas gift for my mom. This pattern is kicking my butt. I keep screwing up and I'm not sure how. I think the yarn I chose is too thin and too variegated. I don't see how it's going to turn into a beautiful shawl like in the picture, because right now, it's looking like a big pile of suck. :wall:
Thank you. I feel better.

Keep in mind that lace always looks positively awful until you block it. If you want a better idea of how it's going to turn out you can always pin it out...but really, blocking is absolutely magical. :thumbsup:

Yep I agree with Julie... I will be working on something lacey and be like eeee gads... but then when you block it...it looks so pretty...even my dh can't believe the difference in blocking lace...:teehee:

Joining the blocking chant over here too. Keep on working on it and take the time to block it. You will be amazed at the difference!

I guess that's my problem. I've never knit lace before, so I don't really know how it goes. I did order a blocking board and blocking wires that should be here tomorrow. Maybe I'll be pleased with it once it's completely done.
