A Hap* For Lorette
Pattern: A Hap For Harriet, by Kate Davies
Yarn: Elemental Effects Shetland Rustic Lace, 1100 yards
Needles: 2.75 mm
Modifications: none, except for miscalculating the amount of yarn I would need for the second half, and having to decrease that end at a faster rate.
What I Learned: Despite all my careful weighing and calculating, I can still screw up and run out of yarn.
This is a well written pattern, knit end to end so the miles of garter stitch aren't so boring. You get to do a bit of simple lace every other row.
*For you non-knitters, a hap is a shawl or wrap to keep you warm. It is a Shetland Islands term, and usually refers to a square shawl with a lace border, but they come in all shapes and sizes.
