Waterlily KAL (knit along with us!)

LInda Lencovic ISLINGTON - British BFL/Silk, Waterlily, work in progress

I’ve been waiting for others to catch up on the Waterlily in the hopes that we can finish the knit together but have run out of patience!  The Latvian braid was much simpler and less fussy than I’d always assumed it would be, as it looks so intricate – a breeze really, and very satisfying as it is so pretty.

I  finished the  braid that separates the body from the lace on our break and have been trying to hold off while others catch up…but I just can’t wait to get this finished  anymore! To excited to wear it. 😉

I tried to hold off a bit longer by knitting a sample of the lace in Light Squirrelly to check gauge differences in the stockinette and lace:

I found that I needed to go down a touch to make gauge, but it really wouldn’t have been an issue if I’d continued along in the same needle (4mm).

I am hoping the rest of you have gotten a bit closer. Do let me know how your progressing on the KAL page! I’d love to see progress pics in the different colours!
