Branching Out

Branching Out from knitty is almost halfway done. The middle keeps scrunching up more and more. I guess that's why we must cast on loosly, but I swear it was flat as a board when I started!

Things I learned:

Use a lifeline. This is a lot of people's first lace project, and I didn't listen at first, but once I finally gave in to the idea of a lifeline, I didn't regret it. Especially after like the bajillionth repeat, when I couldn't bear even considering having to rip to god-knows-where to pick up the lost stitches.

Don't do this and watch TV if you aren't confident in your lace skills.

Wine and branching out don't mix.
