Frost but no snow and lace????
some pictures from the woodland walk across the road. We had quite a lot of ice and every where was so crisp and fabulous views. I'm having a go at the candle flame scarf from knitpicks as it has written instructions. Its for my imbolc shawl. I'm using a lovely green for it that reminds me of new growth pushing up through snow. Pictures when I have something to show.
A question, how do you folks ma rk your page to enable you to see the line of pattern you are following? I used to have something that slid across like aruler with a space but can't find it. Have googled but obviously not using the right search terms as I don't know what the darn things are called.
Also all hints on patterns with written instructions for shawls, scarves gratefully received. They can have charts but need to have it written down also. I got victorian lace today but sadly its all charts so it will be being sold on. I wish publishers/designers would give the choice of charts and written for those of us challenged with the little squares:)
