I knitted this last Summer as my very first experiment with lace knitting. I found the pattern on
Ravelry – Easy As Pie mainly because of the name, and it said it was idea for the novice lace knitter. Anyway, I used 200g of Contessa Silk DK. However, I made several mistakes in it (fortunately none that are too obvious) but because I am a perfectionist it has remained in my knitting box since then, unblocked, unfinished and unloved…

Recently however, because of the forthcoming Fibre East, I have been trying to complete all half finished projects that are in my own yarns, so that I can take them and display then – not to show off my knitting skills – infact far from given the comment about mistakes, but to give people who do not know my yarns an idea of what they look like knitted up.

Anyway, I decided to block it yesterday morning (almost a year after finishing it) and while the mistakes are pretty obvious to me, I am confident they are not so dreadful that it should be destined for the bin. To be honest – I can’t believe what a difference blocking it has made!! It was really unremarkable before, but I am REALLY happy with it! What do you think?
