WIP: Simple Lace Top
No rest for the wicked. From one project right to the next. This one is for my wife's cousin and dear friend Barbra.
From Creative Knitting Magazine May 2009 page 16.
I will be doing it in filati cervinia Genova color 1640.

A beautiful design! The May 2009 has lots of nice lace projects, not too busy, not too complicated! I like that issue! Thanks for posting the source material!

Fits and Starts..and Fits
Well, after working so many nice kx, px, patterns it's been a bit of an adjustment K2, p1, yo, k2tog, p1, k2.
I could find no easy way to tink this when my stitches got off
So it was more times than I care to count.
But it looks like I have a handle on it now.

Yep, married. Haha!

And YES, a lifeline is a very, very useful! I used it with my first sweater which was only a top down roll neck pullover, but it was nice because I was a new knitter. For any type of lace it's extremely important. Unless you are the 1 in a gazillion who loves frogging and re-knitting your projects. BTW..it can be used for trying on sweaters, too. Just make it long enough so the fabric can stretch and remove the needles and try on!
