I meet with my knitting friends on Wednesday evenings at a small community cafe. A couple of weeks ago, the gent who usually serves us, brought us a large bag with an afghan in it.
It is a lace pattern, and two sections of it have managed, over time. to drop. There are no strands that are broken so it appear that the original knitter just missed catching a stitch.
I have gone through every pattern book I have and I haven't found a stitch quite like this. I have found dozens that are close, but all of them appear to be worked in the opposite direction of this one. I sat down yesterday to see if I could copy it.
It went well, but I am not quite there yet. What I produced isn't quite like what the original is, though if its the best I can do, it will suffice for the repair. I just think I am missing some small quirk that gives it its character.
Photos and a little more contemplation this evening.
