Thanks for all your comments. My mother has a nasty habit of walking in on my projects that I am making for her. This one was no different. I was in the process of putting it away and had no time to hide it. It got snatched out my hands with a "Oh, what's that?" So she got her pressie 6 months early. So infuriating but I should be used to it by now.
I'm doing my first lacey project too and i'm totally in the unraveling stage! It seems like every second or third row I mess up.
Maybe I'm learning a lot about something or other...
That's what I was like at first too. Don't give up!
Very lovely! The white really works with the stitch pattern. Will you be blocking it?
Sorry I am a relative newbie to knitting, what does blocking mean?
