Today's news flash about the lace scarf: The following will not surprise most of you. Every time I have undertaken a lace pattern, I have had to tear it out three times before I was able to knit the entire item. And I had a cat who liked to sit by me and play with my knitting needles - or at least that cat was with us during one or two lace projects. NOT that I am blaming the cat; I can mess up very thoroughly all by myself, but he was more fun to watch than the knitting chart!
Today I tore out the knitting on the current lace pattern for the second time.
