The beads are beautiful; the right amount of weight and shimmer for the edge. The shape of the lace and the gauge is also pleasing.
It all has potential.
Concerned about yardage, I had cast on one less repeat in width. But, with beads instead of nupps, there was plenty (20%) remaining. And, the fit is off because of it.
Destined to start over, I am waiting a week before ripping out. With each passing day, I become more sure that a rip-out, re-do is the right choice.
I have since started four scarf-type projects, each only to be frogged before too long.
This month, I will try again. With the “Wendy Knits” Summer Solstice mystery knit-along. I’m not promising anyone anything, but I have downloaded the preliminary information and located my 420 yards of fingering weight. We’ll see what happens!
