Since I was done w/ 2 patterns, I asked for another one to check. I am impressed by the number of errors that can occur in one small pattern. whoah...

But the result is pretty cool.

I'm amazed by how by manipulating stitches, you can get a more 3-dimensional feel. Very cool. See these petals, the crossed-stitches give the petals depth.

When the book comes out (a little plug for Lacis), definitely worth getting. Every pattern I tested has had errors in it.

What a lovely doily. And I know what you mean about the stitches adding 'depth' to the work. Such talented designers.

And well done for getting through it with all of the errors!! Those of us who follow in your footsteps thank you.

I'm so glad you're checking patterns! What a great thing you're doing. And then when I have time some day, I'll get to knit error-free patterns!

They will be taking your suggestions and fixing the patterns, yes?
