One Knit Forward, Two Frogs Back
I think it is time for us to part company. You looked like you were a reasonable pattern that I could easily memorize. I like your simple lace, and I do now have it committed to memory; however along the way, I have had to restart you innumerable times. Maybe it was my fault for choosng to use yarn like Panda cotton the first time I tried you since it splits kind of badly. The main reason for my disgust with you is that when I knit your heel, you said to knit a two-row pattern twenty-three times. Twenty-three times! That just doesn't seem possible! I thought that Panda Cotton was fingering weight, but my heel was plenty long by the time I'd knitted twelve rows.I was so excited to come home from work and to sit down on the couch, have a little cup of coffee and work on you, but I think we're through. Maybe I'll come back to you with some different yarn, but for now au revoir!
