on the prom


One of the joys of living in a seaside town is walking on the prom - always included if I'm doing a 'town beach' walk with Walter. This was a couple of weeks ago, when dusk was pink and the sky was clear.

Tonight the winds are howling, the sea is raging, and the rain is drumming on the rooftops. I'm settling in with my knitting. Last night I started this pattern, but I've never done a yarn over before, let alone lace. All was going well, and then for mysterious unfathomable reasons, it wasn't. So I've ripped it, and will start again.

The patern looks a little complicated. I can just about knit one purl one!

Don't worry about the yarn overs. They'll be easy once you get into the rhythm. But I never did figure out how to deal with mistakes without ripping right back...sounds like you're staying much more level-headed than I did! K x

I have been struggling with yarnovers, too, and gave up on a lace edging to my first shawl. But I have Ysolda's books, and am doing some Cairn mitts, which are nice and easy!
