Using My Powers for Good
So what good is marinating my brains in lace knitting, other than turning all evil snark-weasel on badly-knit examples of lovely lace patterns?
We'll see - I'm making an either brave or totally mad attempt to repair a good friend's triangular Orenburg shawl which has a hole chewed in it by her cat.
The yarn is Jaggerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk, which makes a nice stable stitch that doesn't run.
The hole runs diagonally, taking three diamonds out of the lace ground section, so it's not a simple matter of picking up at the bottom and knitting straight up.
No, it's a puzzle, this is.
