Opening up my new Jan Stawasz book.....

Just opened up the second Stawasz book and this pattern on page 59 jumped out at me and screamed TAT ME!!!!!!

7.5 hours.....2 full restarts from the second row and one whole third row cut off...LOTS of regret using Lizbeth 20 (feels like rope and has slubs all over the place)....sworn at and chucked in the bin. ( Gunna miss that fireplace!!) But it is done as far as it is going to get this week at least. Rows from here on hopefully won't be so cruel!....long chains - Always a challenge!
I am SOOOO out of practice!
(not blocked yet but had to prove I was back!!) lol

  2. Looks great to me!

    Why are his patterns so easy to mess up? What is it about them?

    Lizbeth ESPECIALLY #20 - grrrrrrr......
