On Monday night I started, yet again, on the Myrtle Leaf Stole. I put a life-line in the last foundation row before pattern begins. I knitted Row One and Two and Three and Four and Five and Six with nary a dropped stitch! Aren't we all pleased?
Row Seven marks the half way point of the first pattern repeat [there are 40 repeats for the centre panel]. I inserted my lifeline as I knitted - still no dropped stitches but the yarn was snagging even more than usual. I tugged - too hard: the dental tape cut through my yarn! I frogged it all in disgust!
DD will wind the second skein [just as well I bought two] so I can start again.
Lace Hint #3: use dental floss not dental tape for lifelines - tape is too thick causing overly tight tension [gauge] and snagging with possible dire consequences.
