still love knitting lace, it’s me i’m not so crazy about

i’ve been merrily trucking (can one truck merrily?) on kiri since about 11 pm last night. i’ve probably put about an hour and a half in on it and i’m already this far:

kiri round 1 001 this is at 35 rows.

it may be more than an hour and a half, i’m not sure because i was at row 29 when i realized i screwed up around row 25, and frogged 5 rows. i did it the slow and patient way because i love knitting lace and i want this to be good.

but. did you see the real problem above?

did you? here let me show you:
kiri round 1 002

that hole? those are live stitches.


how on earth did that happen?

i’m frogging down to nada and going to start from there.

in my opinion the best thing about this pattern is that you only have to cast on 3 stitches. booyah.

update: 8:30, i’m back at row 35. in the 3.5 hours since i said i was frogging, i’ve frogged, made dinner, baked cookies, cleaned the kitchen, had an IM conversation, and an email conversation, as well as knit 35 rows. i’m just glad i wasn’t on row 2354375 when i saw the boo boo. because the rows get 4 stitches longer than the previous. that’s a lot more stitches. each row takes longer than the last is the moral of our story.

  1. greek! greek!
    but it’s pretty. See, I don’t know how anyone has the patience to do all this undoing and redoing. How rewarding when it’s all done, tho.

    (strangest verification of all: julykemp)

  2. that’s a crazy undertaking, beautiful outcome though!

  3. of course you can merrily truck!

    despite the doing and undoing, your kiri looks bootiful. i’ve become a big fan of doing and undoing myself. looking at your kiri (CO 3st) makes me sad to be doing birch (CO 299 st!) for my friend’s wedding… alas.

  4. ugh – i don’t like casting on AT ALL.

    necessary though it is, it sucks.

    that’s reason #1 i’m not doing birch. sorry!

  5. mwow. it’s like a different language you are speaking – writing.

    i wish i could knit.

  6. sexylovepits, if i’m ever in houston i’ll teach you! i love teaching people how to knit and i’m insanely patient.
