I'm making the Frog Tree Alpaca Cape Cod Shell scarf
as my first ever lace project.
There seem to be many more holes in the part that looks 'solid' in the pic above ... but since I can't get in really close to check, I have no idea how it's really supposed to look.
I have about 4-5 inches done. How do I tell if I'm doing it right? I have read that lace looks like a big mess until it's blocked, and I'm kind of feeling that that's what I have. This is my first time doing K2tbl, as well as yarn overs. The good news is that I have the right number of stitches on the needles, but other than that, how do I check my progress? I'd like to put in a lifeline, but want to make sure that it's perfect before I do so.
