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:
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?
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.
