Purple Haze

I am knitting a scarf. A scarf for a Christmas gift. This is Arches & Columns Lace Scarf from my Knitting pattern-a-day Calendar. I am using the suggested Crystal Palace Yarns Kid Merino. I have chosen color # 4682 as this is for my friend Amy (no worries - she doesn't know about the blog) in IL and her fav color is purple. It is my first foray into lace knitting. I swatched before buying the yarn and liked the pattern. (and got the pattern) But for the life of me I now can't knit the 4 row repeat to save my life. I have tinked back, in mohair/merino, about as much as I've knit. I need to be at a table, alone in the house, with the TV off to knit this simple chart. Not what you would call relaxing. It is a lovely pattern, and the yarn is very soft on the hands. I have only 4 out of 55 inches complete. Good thing I started early huh?


  • Tinking mohair! You are a very, very brave woman. I can't read a chart to save my life, would it help you if you wrote out the chart by hand? Something about all those little symbols throws me off.
