Lace Knitting It Is Not!

Knitting The Mimosa Shawl was bordering on drudgery and I was nearing the point when I stick the short toothpicks of needles into my eyeballs for entertainment. But as I thought that I was knitting lace (as opposed to producing knit lace where every other row is a rest row, purl in the flat and knit in round knitting) I persevered.

For three days I thought I was advancing into the stratosphere of knitting techniques only to find out today that “All even numbered rows are knit plain and are not charted”!


Inattentivness to pattern instruction does not make one a knitting astronaut.
