The pattern’s not the easiest to understand for someone who’s about amateurishly comfortable with lace. But once I figured it out, it made sense and muddled through quickly enough.

What I don’t understand is why the pattern isn’t symmetrical. Why is there a line of wide circles on one half, and a line of small, tight circles opposite to the wide ones? I don’t get it… I mean that’s what the pattern called for…

August 24th: done knitting. Now I need to crochet a bunch of stuff and make a bead string and, basically, finish the bugger. Blurg.

I hate this pattern. I can’t wear the shawl because it’s not symmetrical. My cast-on and bind-off edges are too different from one another. I never actually did all of the finishing. And the yarn is too lovely to waste on a terrible thing I’ll never wear. FROGGED.
