Knitting Lace

I finished my cowl.  The leaf pattern came out really well, but the edging doesn't look anything like it should.  I've had this problem with edging before.  I still like it and will wear it.  I've always been a fan of cowls because you can wear them so many different ways.

So it appears my next project is grabbing some scrap yarn and a pair of needles and practicing edging until I get it right.  This is an important part of lace so I need to be proficient in it.

Edit to add:  I have pulled out the bad edging and am going to fiddle until I have it right.  Robin, I will post pictures as soon as I have the edging right.

  1. Have you blocked it? Lace nearly always looks much nicer after blocking. I must admit that I hate blocking, and avoid it whenever possible, but even I block lace... (and pictures! We must have pictures! How else can we be properly impressed with your first-ever lace project? Which I will note is way more ambitious than any lace I have ever knit. :)
