If at first you don't succeed

Try try again.

Not one to usually listen to my own advice (seriously) last night I decided to revisit an old UFO/WIP that I started last April (I think). OK so I was supposed to be pattern testing and I've apologised to the lovely design many many times but I just couldn't get past a 31 row zig zag lace panel decrease. I know what I was doing wrong but late night knitting was proving a stumbling block so it went back into its bag ready to re surface when I was ready.

One night last week I was ready and it came out and guess what? Yes, I conquered my fear of the 31 row lace panel and managed to knit 20 rows, yeah!

Not only am I in love with this pattern again Follow Your Dream Shawl but I'm also head over heels in love with the Scheepjes Whirl Yarn again that I bought from Lynn at Lusciously Loopy

Here is my shawl in progress last week, just a few more evenings and it will be ready to block then wear.
About to start the lace panel again

Its hard to go back to a project when you've fallen out of love with it but just as nice when you find it again and decide to give it another ago. The colour is lovely.

Amazing what a break from a project can do. It looks amazing you certainly have managed to master it. Beautiful colour.
