This is not really a fail but it wasn't done in time for the dishcloth swap. It probably won't be done in time for Christmas gifting either. I had good intentions but this project kicked my behind in several different ways.
I should have known this was going to be humdinger. When I saw the chart my eyeballs almost fell out.
I had to take lots of notes to have it all make sense to my old brain.
I use the chart and the written instructions to always make sure I know where I am.
Having said all that, it is a very well written pattern and the results are beautiful-just not in this yarn. Regular craft store cotton is too splitty and too stiff to do all the cabling and lace sections.
I am soldiering on with the original but I've got reserves on hand that just arrived in the mail. Dishie is a softer cotton that I hope will be the answer to making good use of this gorgeous pattern. As crazy as it seems I am liking the challenge.
