2 minutes after I posted I looked at the photo and realised the lace was off centre on the first row. Oh no!! So it is RIP for the work I have done, and 'rip' as well. I have unravelled it, picked up the stitches and now, the SEVENTH time is the charm. I can see where the hole should be, it's just not there..........I have attempted to indicate with my inexpert drawing!!!
