Magli, a UFO!

To recover, and sustain my bruised muse, I picked up the Magli Shawl, by Nancy Bush. I had started it last summer, and put it away about a third of the way done. I found the lace knitting to be unsettling... the stitch count changed throughout the pattern, and the markers needed to be moved. I lacked confidence in my knitting and couldn't read the stitches clearly. And then there were those dang nupps where I had to drop my knitting and take a crochet hook to pull the yarn through... pita!

Well, I can now! Am having fun again, and now have 22 repeats out of 31 done! It's lovely lace, and even though the lace weight yarn is a dark burgandy from Elann, I can read the knitting just fine now. I have come to a new understanding!
