Old Designer Lace Combos

I found these 2 patterns -first Taj by K-Kinder's Lace Book.
Second in an old MKM publication by D-Coutts.

I had to change both graphs to suit my way of knitting them.

They both look very pretty; but not to my liking the very long floats!

An Operator Error turns out as a new Technique?

This is the result of not having one's mind on what one is doing!
Instead of pressing in the Fairisle button I managed to press both
buttons as for Threadlace.

Actually I rather like the result.

More Brother Lace & Fairisle combinations

The graph including lace& fairisle for 134 SW.

4th row of Lace knitting will select 1st row of Fairisle needles, PARK LC at left-off bed!
engage MB carriage on rightt side KC II knit 2 rows, PARK on right side.

Make sure the carriage is parked on the right rails, then start at left with Lace carriage.........
At NO time should both carriages be on the bed simultaneously!
Remove formatting from selection

Finally feel just a bit better (at least I am able to sit for a while
with the help of painkillers)

So have tried to make a couple more pat files & knit the swatches.

Just to show how one can use a Pattern from the Stitchworld book (930-940)
& add the Fairisle component to it.
I personally prefer these type of small patterns as they lend themselves
better for this type of combinations (if one looks at the back one can see
the small floats of col.2).
