I recently helped a knitting buddy revise her own abandoned lace project. She had ambitiously set out to make a large lace shawl for a friend as a retirement present. It was a very complex pattern, with 3 sections, each with unique and intricate patterns made with linen. She almost made it to the end of one section before realizing that it would never be finished. It sat in a bag that way for at least a year, until a few weeks ago when she handed it to me (for the second time, it turns out--I had helped her take out a few rows to fix a mistake awhile back) and said she'd like to take out a few inches to render a simple triangle that could be used by itself as a scarf.
You might expect this adventure to turn me away from knitting lace. Instead, I've started (and abandoned) one project, and started another that I'm still working on.
