ahhh sweet relief…

After too many mis-starts to count, soleil is finally progressing. I have finished an entire round of lace. I put stitch markers every ten so that I can’t mess up.

Things I’ve done wrong so far:
1. Cast on so tight it made my fingers hurt.
2. Twisted my join
3. Forgot to knit the first row before the lace
4. Twisted my join again

And other various mistakes.

Here is my gorgeous yarn from Elann. They call it mauve, but it’s truly a periwinkle.

And here is the first round of lace.

And a detail of the lace and my nifty drinking straw stitch markers!

    Ouch about casting on too tight. Like the stitch markers… it works in a pinch. So far it looks great. Love the color!

    That colour looks amazing!

    Thanks for the idea for the stitch markers, if I can’t find mine tonight I’ll try straw bits!
