Lace Blob

I am participating in the Diamond Fantasy KAL hosted by the designer, Sivia. The tips and tricks discussed on the group have been very helpful. Yesterday, I progressed to the 2nd repeat of chart B, and decided that to reduce risk, I would place a stitch marker between each 12 stitch repeat. Well, on one of the rows, you have to "borrow" a stitch from the next 12 stitch section. If I hadn't of heard about this tip on the KAL group, I would have spent hours trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. It's little tips like this that make a KAL so worthwhile. Here is my progress as of Sunday:



I didn't bother with a close up because the lace just looks like a blob on the needles. Since Sunday, I have switched to circ's and progressed to the 2nd repeat of Chart B. It's looking really lovely. The blooming crocuses* aren't bad either, eh? I am using Fleece Artist merino sock in a lovely variegated pink. I think this will make the perfect spring scarf.
