Another Knitting Update

I'm now knitting the lace pattern on my cardi. I've completed two pattern row repeats and now getting ready to work on the armhole areas. This will require some quiet time and solitude as I have to do some BOs and decreases on a few rows and be able to knit and maintain the lace pattern. Sounds like the appropriate time to put in a lifeline incase I make a mistake and need to frog back to a starting point. So, I'm copying the lace pattern chart and writing notes to myself. We'll see what happens.

The only minor issue I'm having is with the yarn. This Debbie Bliss yarn is a bit splitty. Still, it's a joy to knit with as it has a lovely silk/rayon/cotton mix. The color is just gorgeous.

Here are a few pictures of my progress:

I am thoroughly enjoying my knitting time with this cardigan. So far, it has been a pleasurable knitting experience.

I attempted to work on my lace scarf. I found another issue. Apparently, I lost one or two stitches in each of the repeat pattern. I'm at the point of frogging this project. Or I could "tink" back to the problem area...probably two rows worth of knitting. I've lost interest in the yarn color, too many errors in this project, and well, it's not as exciting as knitting the Hey Teach cardi. What am I to do?

I'm loving your cardi!

As for the scarf... if your not feelin' the love anymore, time to frog and use it for something else :) The stitch pattern does look pretty though, you can't notice the dropped stitches in the pattern from your photo.
