Mile of Knots

Another day, another mile of knots. Well, that's what it feels like anyway, though I wasn't very
focused. Without my laptop sitting next to me, I was a bit more antsy than usual. This resulted in my getting up and cleaning things at strange intervals all day. While that's probably better for the cleanliness of my house, I think this behavior would drive me mad eventually. Like I said, I did get some more work done on the doily.You can finally see what the pattern on the outside is doing. Though I screwed up royally on it. There was some miscounting on my part and I think that is what contributed to the ruffle that is not laying down as quickly as I had hoped.

There have also been a few smaller mistakes, but I'm not about to even try to cut them out and start again. It's forward to the end on this one. I still have quite a few rounds before this pattern section is finished, but it's been my favorite to work so far. After this it's another round of square loops, which are not my favorite, a simple loop round and then the edging of individual rounds. Since I know my count is way off from the original pattern, there will have to be more counting and adjusting to make it work once I get there. That's probably quite a while away though. So today there will be yet another mile of knots.
