The yarn I've chosen was literally begging to be used in this pattern. It's a fine, light-weight baby yarn with a lovely sheen and a super soft touch. The shimmery silver color reminds me of moonbeams, and it's so soft I imagine it's what moonlight would feel like, in yarn form. Yes, that's right, I just got that poetical.
|So soft, it feels like it's made from unicorns and angels.|
Starting out was probably the worst part. Since I'm basically learning new skills as I go, I always allow for a bit of difficulty...but this one was crazy, and the fault was obviously with me, for the most part. I re-knit the first ten rows -- literally, and without exaggeration -- about twenty times before undoing them and starting over.
|My ball of yarn decided it wanted to turn into a giant spaghetti monster.|
Once started, this pattern is -- as advertised -- easy as pie. The main body is a four-row repeat, before the charts kick in. This makes it perfect for taking with me on-the-go, like for those long waits at the doctor's office when you show up on time but they're still on lunch...yeah, it's perfect for times like that.
|Folds up neatly into a little travel-pack!|
|The main pattern done, onto the lace edges!|
