On the bright side today I successfully got through the first of 10 repeats on the lace pattern. I am so glad that I put the life line in. Without the life line. I would have been in trouble. It took me 2 hours to knit 2 rows of the lace pattern. I know it's not much, but here is a picture of the 1st repeat of lace. I know it does not look like lace yet.
