I did it! I completed the first 20 rows of my first Niebling! (Technically I did this on June 12, but I didn’t want to mess up my queued pre-written posts, and I didn’t schedule the post that mentions my Niebling thoughts until just yesterday. So this has been just a twinkle in my eye for quite a while. Months, really.)
- Sure, I’m using easy yarn. Not doing it in crochet thread like the great laceman desired.
- Sure, it only gets harder from here. Sure, the first 20 rows look to be the absolute easiest part.
- Sure, I’m working relying heavily on the notes of other ravelers.
- Sure, my needles are much larger than typical lace needles.
I’m still pretty damn proud of myself. For a lace knitter I am not. YET. Watch out elbow, here Niebling comes.
