Here is today's progress on the special project.
I had made a mistake in my car knitting and couldn't work it out
so I ripped back about two and a half rows and put in a lifeline.
Ideally this is done before it is needed, not after as I did here.
I continued from there, finished the second repeat of this second pattern
and put in another lifeline.
Only one is pictured here and I don't know if you can see it very well.
It is the pale green yarn.
I have learned my lesson and will continue to do the same as I continue.
I have talked about lifelines before here.
In lace knitting one will put in a lifeline in an uncomplicated row
and mark it on the pattern in case a mistake is made.
Ripping back to an easily recognizable row, not too far back,
is better than having to start completely over.
Go take a look if you feel so inclined.
Also this pattern includes P2tog tbl.
(purl 2 together through back loop)
I was finding this very difficult to do with my yarn and slippery needles
without much time and frustration.
Rather than changing needles, I researched an easier way to do P2tog tbl
and found a wonderful video that not only makes the stitch easier to do
but also makes the stitch look better.
I hope something in this post has or will make your knitting life easier.
