  1. I’m having so much fun with your building with lace book. I’m using a different color with each section so I’m always a little excited to start a new section. The instructions are so clear and make it really easy to learn new stitches. Thank you

  2. I am a combination knitter. I always knit through the back of the loop. When doing the smocking stitch, afyer you have pulled the loop to the right, will it look OK to knit through the back or should I knit from the front on just this stitch? Thank you for this beautiful pattern. I am having fun working it.

  3. I am as usual confused . I have done the smock stitch in your building with lace for the 6th panel. I have the correct stitch count for all rows including #7 #15 with smocking stitch. But the smocking stitch is not over 5 stitches as your video shows . I have placed the right needle between the stitches and pulled up the loop and placed in on the left needle and knit the 2 together and then continued with the 5 stitches etc. Is this correct for 6th panel?
    Hope your not running out of patience with me. I have a lot to do to finish all your books.

  4. Thanks for watching my videos! I would wrap the stitches as instructed in the pattern. Smocking looks slightly different. Happy knitting!

  5. Hi! First off, I absolutely love your videos!!
    I am working on a pattern that has what looks like a smocking stitch but the instructions are to wrap 6 stitches twice (more similar to your wrap 3 video).
    When is it best to wrap versus smock?
    Thank you!

  6. Thanks for knitting Building With Lace with me! As the patterns increase in difficulty, it is more important than ever to use lifelines and markers. The markers need to be reset with the staggered design in Section #6 so be sure to follow the directions for their placement in the “Markers” instructions. My best advice to go slow and steady and you will be fine. You can do it!

  7. Love this smocking stitch. A group of us ladies are working on your Building with Lace. I am appreciative of your on line help & looking forward to your next book & adventure. Thank you for the video lessons & tips. They are allowing me to build my confidence while creating this beautiful shawl it already looks like a masterpiece & I am only on section six.
