My first attempt at designing a lace pattern, it worked well on paper, didn’t translate so easily into knitting! After many hours of knitting numerous samples, and endless mugs of good strong tea, I finally completed the pattern.
Chris has just asked how you knit strong cups of tea, Chris has just had his yarn stash taken away from him!!
