...I've done three and a half repeats and I can't find any dropped stitches. I'm being extra careful with that K2 tog! I was tempted to turn it into SSK but have stuck with the pattern - why should I let lace get the better of me? And, no more TV [boo hoo - the tennis season is just starting]; it's talking books only for me - I won't be taking my eyes off that knitting for one single stitch!
Thanks to all who commented. I really appreciate your support. Perhaps if the stole was for me I'd have given up and knitted some easier pattern - one with a rest row on WS. But this is the one the Bride has chosen so this is the one she will have! Off to knit - truly, thank you all so much, your comments and support mean more than you know!
