Please be kind....

Here is my BO started on 8's. Will blocking really fix this or should I frog and start over on 10's? There aren't any mistakes that I can see, it's just impossible to see the pattern unless I stretch it way out. I'm kinda glad I've not made much progress on it just in case I need to frog the silly thing! LOL

Lace should open up with blocking.

What needle size is recommended for the type of yarn you use? With lace knitting, you generally want to use a larger needle than the size recommended for the yarn (usually 2 needles sizes up is good, but it varies).

My pattern opened up with blocking (it can be seen a bit below yours in burgandy), but I grabbed size 8 addi's when I meant to grab 9's, had I noticed early on I would have frogged! I'm very thankful for blocking bc it did open up a great deal..I was using dk wt yarn.
Let us know about your progress & decision :0)
