Do you think some people just aren't cut out to knit lace? I consider myself an average or above average knitter; I can do fairisle; cables; seaters and most anything required of a pattern, eventually. BUT I CANNOT FOER THE LIFE OF ME DO LACE.
I'm on vacation and decided to try a lace shawl pattern, my duaghter is getting married next year and I want to make a shawl for her. This was to be a practice run.
I have made 5 attempts to start this shawl, each time getting well into it before discovering I am horribly off the chart. NEVER
ending up with the correct number of stitches ath the end of a repeat. The designer is on Ravelry and I am sure I have driven her crazy with emails, I couldn't have a better resource. She answers every question and the chart really isn't that complicated.
But I just can't do it!!! Do I just declare defeat or does someone out there have some magic fairy dust they could send my way.
