Wednesday WIP Time!!

17 Jul

This project has been on the needles so long, I forgot about it and bought new size 4 circulars thinking I didn’t have any. The pattern is called Kernel and the yarn is Araucania Itata Solid- yes the same yarn of my woven scarf from the other day- love this color. Well it is a simple chart, and I have only two more pattern repeats left of 23, however I have not been able to memorize it. It is just too much for me to memorize and I have had to rip back on the project back so many times I can’t count. This is the project that convinced me to use lifelines. A lifeline if you did not know is a piece of scrap yarn drawn thru a row at certain parts of a pattern, so that if you mess up, you can rip back several rows and not lose stitches.

The picture for now does not do it justice! The pattern is lovely,  and there’s a little beadwork, I cannot wait to see how it will look after I am finished and block it to open up the lace. But that will probably be a while- I am going to be visiting my sister in Seattle and this is just too labor intensive for a travel project. Might cast on some new socks?
