Tried to CO for this a couple of times and had to frog. The first time because I didn’t pay attention to the chart, the second because I didn’t like the CO I used. Gave myself a few days’ break and now, take three!

Used the lace CO here. Using DPNs my MIL bought me since the thread kept catching on the join of my circs. So far so good with only one mistake (that I know of).

Blocking. I made one (obvious) mistake. Oops. I some how got the stitch count off towards the beginning. I thought I fixed it correctly, but nope! Oh well. It’s still pretty!

I’ll be honest though, even after this the mystery of lace still confounds me.
