but i really need some inspiration to keep going on orangina. any ideas?
This is what worked for me. I found if I count through the rows by counting to 9 instead of repeating the pattern, it's much easier not to lose count. Each of the yarn overs count as 1 and after a few times I had it memorized that if I'm saying 5 I should be doing a k2tog etc.... Since I started doing that I've been able to knit this while watching TV again.
Also if I'm in the middle of a row and think I might have lost concentration I count to the end in multiples of nine. If there's the wrong number of stitches left over I know I messed up the pattern and can pick back sooner than later. I find I'll go for a while with no mistakes and then I inevitably have to correct a row or two- but the lace is so pretty it's really worth it
Sorry if this is obvious advice- I just thought I'd share what's working for me.
