Here's my newest acquisition care of Ebay--Burda Praxis Strickspitze---a lace knitting book. There are some really cool lace stitch patterns in the doilies in this book. It's all in German but it does have charts. Only problem is, I don't have English translations for the lace symbols.
Does anyone out there know where I can find English translations for Burda's lace charting symbols?
I finished the Pelts scarf pattern last night. I found one error in the pattern. It's a minor one. I worked around it. I've sent a message to the designer asking for clarification. It appears that a decrease instruction is missing after you knit the ear row. You may not be able to see the ears in the picture. They are like puffy lumps on the "head" of the scarf. This was such a fun knit. The only problem was keeping track of my stitches with this furry yarn. I had to "feel" for the individual stitches I knit as opposed to being able to see them. Cost: less than $2. I used Hobby Lobby's Yarn Bee Elf Eyelash yarn. It's not really an eyelash yarn, more of a fur type yarn. The skeins have 59 yards. I used one skein and some from the second one.
