Ive been struggling with knitting. It has always been exasperating for me. Even more so  when I attempted lace knitting! But after much encouragement from some fellow crafters, I persevered and finally finished an easy lace scarf project http://www.knittersreview.com/article_how_to.asp?article=/review/profile/020704_a.asp.
*sorry for the shitty phone cam pics.


I made some mistakes but I managed to undo the mistakes, without the use of a lifeline! Cheesy but really, its an easy pattern. Good practice for me! Smiley Smiley Now I feel a little bit more confident to attempt more knitting projects!

That is a beautiful stitch! I can barely manage knit/purl.  Looks great!

Congratulations! It is truly a beautiful stitch, and I know how exasperating knitting lace can be. I'll have to get that pattern and try it.
Thanks for sharing!

Very pretty feather and fan lace scarf!! I love that you chose a green yarn too  Grin

Don't worry: lace projects can be frustrating to experienced knitters as well.  Probably because it requires paying attention to what you're doing, because if you miss a yarn over or decrease, it can really screw up the look of the pattern.  If you can tackle something like this, I believe you shall struggle no more! (Or very little, anyway).

 I have to say, thanks for the pattern! I am making a Barbie Blanket with some left over white "Simply-Soft " yarn, and size 8 needles. I used 3 repeats, total of 58 stitches. It's just  exactly 12 inches wide, and about 7 inches long right now. I'll probably put a short fringe all around.
  This pattern is so easy.... just memorized it after about 8 rows.
Thanks Again!!

struggling? your FO doesn't show it! i think it's awesome that you're pushing on to more difficult endeavors on your 4th project. my mom has been knitting for years and hasn't done anything but garter stitch scarves. I will have to show her your post and maybe it'll inspire her to take on a more difficult project.

ps- striker is right- i've been knitting for over 10 years and i still get frustrated sometimes- especially with lace. but the challenge is part of the fun Wink

happy knitting!

hehe. thank you all. I blocked the scarf and it looks better now ... no curling at the sides. practice does indeed make perfect. i'm so much more comfortable with knitting now once i got the hang of it.   i'm trying to knit a cardigan now! a little ambitious i think. haha.
