I'm going to Branch Out!

I started my Clapotis ages ago, but it's an "I'm in the car, waiting for one of my kids to get out of practice" project. I'm finally to the point where I've dropped one stitch. It was very exciting!

So I've decided to knit an also very Behind The Times classic, Branching Out. I have some Harris Tweed Textiles Shetland 4 Ply in Jalapeno from Elann that I'm going to use. I've never knitted lace before, so wish me luck!

You go, girl! What a lovely pattern! Keep us posted on your progress.

I'm still trying to finish Bobblicious.

Enjoy it! I found I had great luck with Branching Out by making note cards (like flash cards), each with a different row written on it, and just attaching them to one another with a key ring thingy so that I could flip through them. I would paper-clip them together wherever I stopped (that way, I could knit less than one full repeat at a time and still not mess the whole thing up beyond belief). I'm a leeeetle disorganized, so I've developed tremendous coping mechanisms. That was one of them.

Good luck with it--BO was my first knitted lace project and I really enjoyed it (I made two, one after another, for gifts). I found that I really had to count stitches at the end of *every* row to keep myself from screwing up. Given that the width only ranged from 25 to 31 stitches, that wasn't particularly onerous--heaven help me if I ever do a wider lace project! I believe stitch markers will be in order...
