The lace pattern is proving harder than I thought. I've ripped back 3 times. Argh.
In good news: Mummy gave me a honkin' gift certificate to Skein Lane, so I could buy the yarn to make Bristow for myself... One nice thing about Skein Lane is that they have a 6-month return policy on yarn, so you can buy plenty of skeins for your pattern and not run out (as long as you finish in 6 months, that is!).
And she really likes her lace scarf. Wore it to dinner tonight with a lovely pin. Faboo.
