Knitting on the infinity loop stopped for a week or more while I was busy with a deadline....
So, when I picked up the loop I couldn't remember what stitch pattern I had used on the lace edging.
By the way, I did add the aqua/purple saturated Colinette Jitterbug to the mix. Gay said I should, and that's all I needed to go for it. I'm glad I did because for some reason all the reds and purples were depressing me. I might be too sensitive to color but anyway I feel better now that there's aqua in there.
I spent a long time reverse engineering the lace pattern. It's not complicated, but I was tired. Eventually, I figured it out and at that same moment remembered the source pattern book. I consoled myself by telling myself that now, I would never forget the stitch pattern. yeah right. Save Time, Take Notes!
One more confession, when I cast on for this project I did not count my stitches. Crazy? Yes.
Since the stitches go around both ends, knitting the lace edging is taking FOREVER. It literally feels like infinity. I tried to count the stitches but there were too many...
