I've spent the last six weeks or so knitting numerous pigs, gloves and a couple of scarves. So it was time for something completely different ....
I decided on a Shetland Lace scarf and, to add a little something extra, to do it in silk.
As usual, at first the lace looks messy and unlike the finished result.
There is a danger period, for me, until the end border has been done, the stitches picked up and the first lifeline has been put in, to give up, especially when dealing with silky smooth silk.
Now that this danger zone has been traversed successfully - although I did drop the stitches off the needle at one point and it took several goes to get the stitches picked up nicely - the rest of the scarf has a much better chance of being completed.
