Notes on Project

This pattern gets easier and easier to knit, the more I do it. This time around I changed the spine to a three-together stitch which I like better than the single spine stitch. Other than that, no modifications were made. I love Helen’s colorway with its blues and greens and lace-weight yarn is such a pleasure to knit. This project came off the needles without a hitch. Far cry from the first time I knit it. Of course I was a newbie at lace-knitting at the time and had no inkling of how to read lace charts. So much easier now!
