I, very fortunately it seems, have just begun a shawl for my MIL for Christmas, knowing that I'm not a very fast knitter, and this is my first large, lacy project.
Wow! Who knew I couldn't count to 5 or 6????! I've got about 2 inches so far, but it should be about 6 based on the number of actual rows I've done (and ripped back and done again!!)
Yes, I'm using lifelines, or I would have thrown the thing in the trash by now!!
Ahhh...now I feel better, having shared that with folks who will understand.
Actually, I suppose it's going well, in that I am continuing to fix mistakes and not just knitting two together in frustration at random locations!
I think with a few more correct repeats, I'll begin to get it. Right?
