Weakness Averted

Another attempt on the needles. 

After the last rip I spent a couple of hours on Ravelry looking at alternate patterns. I must have looked at every possible fingering weight beaded pattern. I even favorited a couple that were possibilities. But then I’d see Storm Warning again and just know that it’s the pattern I want to knit. I knew I had to do something to change things up to make this work. I dug through the needle stash to see if I could put my hand on a size 6 circular needle and it was the first one I found! That has to be a good sign right. 

So I’ve made it further than any other attempt. We won’t mention how long this took. I keep double checking everything- right number of stitches, needle secure before adding a bead, writing down every row after it’s knit. There are 8 rows in a repeat, hopefully after a few times through I’ll relax a little. Or maybe not.

  1. It is really pretty. Love the colour yarn and beads. And if anything, we are having a storm warning here in SA, so it is indeed a sign you are on the right track with the pattern. 🙂
    Go for it.

    It sounds like it will be worth all the effort. My first lace garment behaved that way, but once I got the hang of it, it moved right along. Now I love lace. Don’t forget to use lifelines as you go, just in case.

    Cheering you on from the sunny midwest! Maybe you just need to get away from the snow and leave the gray skies behind?

    Great job! Salpal’s lifeline advice is a good one if this is a new thing for you. In no time you’ll be zipping through. If you get sick of writing rows you can get a stitch counter to hang off your needle or around your neck (google clicky) or you can get an app on your smartphone.
