Change of Plans

Despite three attempts, I couldn’t get through more than three rows of the lace edging pattern for the Garter Lace Jacket from Simple Style without making errors. The fact that I was watching old episodes of Sherlock with my husband didn’t help. Normally, I’m not one to give up (and especially not when it’s a pattern I’ve already knitted), but all of those pesky knits and purls through the back loops were giving me fits.

I decided to try the traditional Old Shale or Feather and Fan pattern instead, which just happened to repeat over the same number of stitches.
