Hi Paula, I thought I would share a story with you about a project I abandoned. As a newish knitter listening to the Knit Picks podcast, I was intrigued by Kelly Petkin’s lace knitting and eventually picked a lace shawl pattern from one of my first knitting books, One Skein Wonders. I ordered a hank of lace weight yarn (not paying attention to the size of the hank, because the book was for projects with one skein so that’s all I got!) and cast on. This was in 2011. The pattern was called Floral Mesh, and I struggled with every row. My stitch markers kept slipping under yarn overs so every section required a good deal of fiddling. I set it aside after knitting a couple of inches, deciding I just wasn’t skilled enough for lace knitting. After all, it couldn’t be the pattern’s fault, right? Last summer I decided it had hibernated enough and pulled it out to take with me on a plane trip. I still struggled with the pattern that just wouldn’t cooperate. There was nothing intuitive about the lace so memorizing wasn’t an option. Then I realized I had a 50 gram ball while the pattern used 100 grams. That was the last straw... there was no way this was going to work. I really hated to frog it though because I’d already put A LOT of effort in. I happened to notice my niece’s American Girl doll and decided it was the perfect size for her. I cast that thing off and called it good! My Ravelry name is BlueDogThreads and that project is called Floral Mesh Shawl in case you’d like to take a peek. :) Suz in Southern Oregon
