wound both skeins together to make holding the yarn double easier. cake only weighs 94 g. what’s up with that knitpicks??
hoping that the dark and doubled yarn will make this non-see through and that it will be big enough to cover up while nursing.

mar 20th: i’m getting ready to start the second repeat of the increase section and i have to say, this pattern isn’t written that great…it isn’t terrible, but i wouldn’t recommend it for a beginning lace knitter…you kind of have to be able to figure out what is meant in certain places and know that when you start repeating the increase section, row 1 isn’t entirely accurate…i’m a little disappointed because this is a $5 pattern…if it were free it would be a different story. i hope it comes out the way it should…also, i’m not sure if i’m just dumb or what, but her explanation for a m1 with a twisted stitch threw me way off…so i’m just lifting the bar and knitting it. i also just did a long-tail cast on of 5 stitches…

ugh…starting the decrease section, and it isn’t hard, but…the pattern…it just isn’t like clear enough to warrant spending 5 bucks on.
mar 26: finished 1st decrease section…my 4 stitch edge is crazy wonky…i’m so tempted to frog this but i’m almost done and i figure i will just wear it as a scarf … but i have to say, i feel like i didn’t do that great of a job on this. and there is no way it will be a nursing cover. you can see right through this sucker.
