Now I get it. . .


It only took me three or four times of casting on the 375 stitches, re-knitting the first three to five rows, and one MAGNET BOARD. And now I finally got it. I'm telling you Ene's Scarf almost kicked me down. But there's something about being able to read the pattern upright and having the other rows blocked off that makes knitting this lace so much easier. I'm only on row 12 but it's working and going much faster. I also learned how to fix mistakes without having to rip back rows. Now I think I can call myself a lace knitter!

    K,
    I am so proud of you! You give me hope! I bought yarn for Ene in November, but haven't done anything. Trying to work up the courage. From past posts, it seems almost everyone has trouble. Good luck. I think I'll give it a go soon. I'm going to try your suggestions. Love the color you chose. Which yarn did you choose?

    4 cast ons here. And a couple of rips back to lifelines. I'm FINALLY past the first chart. I definitely share your pain.

    I'm glad I'm not alone. Well I guess that's not a good thing to be glad about. But it's nice knowing that I'm not the only one who couldn't get through this on the first go. I'm using Blackberry Ridge 100% wool. I didn't like the colors my LYS had in the silk/wool blend so I went with this. Same guage. And it's nice to work with.
