I have beaten the lace scarf! I may be speaking too soon, but I appear to have conquered its tricksy ways, although admittedly I only did this by forgoing my usual knitting accompaniment, Radio 4. I had been knitting while listening online to the (excellent, to my faint surprise, as I thought it sounded schmalzy) adaptation of R. L. Delderfield's To Serve Them All My Days, which ran every day last week in the Afternoon Play slot. But it was too interesting and moving, and I got quite caught up in the drama, so I kept losing my place in the pattern, and making mistakes, and forgetting whether I'd just ssk'ed. So I have to admit that I can only do this pattern with no distractions like exciting radio dramas. Bah. But! My concentration has paid off, and I have now knitted about seven inches of lovely scarf, and I keep holding it up to the light to admire its pattern, which I think is becoming slightly annoying to my housemates (Me: Look! It's like a tree! Isn't it gorgeous? I can't believe I made it! LOOK AT IT, EVERYONE!). I just hope the excitement doesn't wear off before I've knitted enough of it to wear....
