Frogged because I think this yarn would be better as something else. I’m just losing the color changes due to the pretty lace pattern and it’s a light fingering with a light twist.

Well-written pattern. Fun! Intermediate to advanced knit skills recommended. And I have to do this when hubby’s not around and no other interruptions, otherwise, I will make the strangest mistakes. Frogging is not bad, however, but it’s a waste of time, so I will have a different project to work on when hubby is home. :)

The yarn is super soft, but it’s light fingering so it’s a bit of a challenge to crochet this neatly. I’m sure, after blocking, it’ll look fantastic!

Trying out my Furls hook purchased used from Raveler. If it keeps my hand, wrist and arm from hurting, then I’m sold!

Well, it does make it significantly better. My arm still hurts a bit, but that was from a previous injury. However, my hand and wrist don’t hurt like they used to with other hooks.
