I just ripped the scarf I started, and I'm starting it again in a "little leaf" lace stitch. The vine lace was pretty, but chaotic in a variegated yarn. Variegated needs to have some areas that aren't being slipped or knitted together, I think. So far, the new stitch is more satisfactory - I'll photograph it if I continue to like it.
My struggle with finding a pattern is very un-Anne-like, isn't it? She'd have picked something and just plunged ahead with great joy. (But Marilla would have been there to advise.)
