My very first lace project is finished. I cannot describe how happy I am having done this. And the outcome is overwhelming to me. Before blocking it looked ok.
But after blocking - well, it is a mystery what some blocking wires, pins and hours of crawling around the floor can do.
My knitting friends helped me - and I am so thankful to them.
I actually could not have done this without them. Advice, cheering and help all the way.
Knitting after chart was essential. I could never have knitted this if I should read line after line with instructions.
It was a bit terrifying at first - but after a couple of rounds it was perfect. Especially when I knitted something wrong...
The only thing that was difficult was to find out about the size as it is knitted from the top and down.
I had 560st on my needle before binding off. It is huge - but it is going to be fantastic wearing during winter. Just wrapping myself in a lot of hearts and a rainbow.
When you have a rainbow deep down in your heart, your smile will shine bright. You know you are a part of that colorful, magical feeling you´ll find, when you have a rainbow inside.
