I made one swatch last night, and believe me, I am embarrassed to admit that I frogged it several times, row by row, to the beginning garter stitch part. I have no idea how could I have either one stitch too many or one not enough. How does that happen on lace knitting?
I spent at least 3 hours making that little 35 stitches and 32 rows piece. I cannot believe it.
Of course I had breaks, like coffee and some telly watching but basically I was just knitting and swearing.
The color is faint yellow, it almost fainted when I decided to spray water on it. If I don't feel like crocheting tonight, I'll make another swatch; using row counters and stitch markers, and bigger needles and different yarn. If not, then I will just crochet.
