With no 'surfing' time available to me, I have had time for this - 198 Yards Of Heaven.
I finished my Olympic sweater, then knit the promised Lucy Hat, finished my navy socks and finally have taken up the challenge of 198 Yards Of Not-So- Heavenly Heaven.
I have managed to figure out the pattern and other than having to knit more rows than prescribed due to my finer yarn, I am happy with the results. Was the pattern easy to decipher? No. Was the pattern clear to me? No. Could the pattern have been written in an easier-to-decipher way? IMO - for sure. Once more, my knitting brain seems out of sync with 99% of the ravellers who knit this shawl.
As I like to do when I am faced with a pattern I think should be more clear, I've done it my way! I re-wrote it for my own - and that of my lace-knitting friend - use. The test of my re-write will be of course if my lady can figure out my version.
In finishing this post, it seems that either my virus is not completely cured or blogger is not working 100% because I can neither spell check nor post pictures. My apologies. ETA These are now working. I hae added the photo.
