It’s been a while since I posted my start on Winter by Grace Fearon from Emilyandthe Handmade, so I thought I would give a short update. I haven’t gotten very far partly because I’ve been busy, and partly because instead of working on my doily and the afghan that I already had started, I decided to start a new knitting project last weekend.
This weekend I was determined to get a few more rounds done, so I sat down for an hour or so and tackled the pattern. I made it to the end of round 9 but I’m having a bit of trouble on round 10. I’m hoping I can figure it out soon so that I can carry on sometime this week. I had thought to add some white to this doily, but I’ve reconsidered and decided to it entirely in blue. I’m pleased so far with how it’s turning out, but a bit frustrated with the portion that’s giving me a problem.
What do you do if you encounter a difficult part in a pattern? Do you set it aside for a while and come back to it later, or do you struggle through until you figure it out?
