#78 of 365 - Two More Join the Pile

I finished another 198 yards of Heaven yesterday. This one is in a lovely variegated light green hand spun I got in the most recent Saint Patrick's Day swamp.

I also finished, FINALLY, my Citron, such as it is. I had a hard time with the instructions on this on. So this is my take on it. It hasn't been blocked yet but it's size it is more like a scarf than a shoulder cover. I also made the last ruffle really, really ruffled.

Again, it sucks getting old. Rebecca had trouble with the 198 and I had trouble with the Citron. I guess either we are tripping down Old Timers Lane together or some knitting instructions could be better written.

Can't wait to see them in real life! I want to make the 198 a little bigger next time

I vote option B: some instructions aren't very well written. Beautiful lace work (says she who has never completed a lace project).

Bigger yarn and bigger needles might so it.

Thanks, Tala.

I'll tell you, there are a LOT of knitting instructions that could be written better.
The socks I am working on now (with multiple charts) have directions for different parts all over the place! By the time I find what *part* I'm looking for, I've lost where I left off in the main directions! (These are the socks I had hoped to finish for the Olympics......HA!)
It's the directions me!
