Soleil-Along

Soleil-Along

I've started my Soleil, I wasn't able to use my reclaimed re-dyed cotton as it was too bulky. I'm using some other German cotton I had in my stash that I bought years ago at Mary Maxim. As usual I have to go down several sizes to get gauge, 3.25mm in this case (instead of the 4mm called for).

I find the lace easy enough to work, I placed markers every 40 stitches and then added more every 20 stitches when I screwed up a few times occassionally forgetting to psso. Of course I wouldn't find the error until two rows later when doing the next pattern row, so I'd just frog those two or three stitches back a couple of rows and fix it. {whew!}
