the music of lace

I have read recently that knitting lace is like hearing music.   I get that now.   I have cast on my 3rd lace project, buttercup, and find it calling my name.   AS I knit the world around becomes quiet, and even though it would seam tedious, the constant counting, k3, yo, k4, ssk, etc it becomes rhythmic.   The chart symbols form a picture . Finding mistakes is becoming more intuitive.
The piece is hard to put down; I knit 20 rows of the chart pattern yesterday in one day.   Will it stop when I come to the short rows.   I guess I will find out soon♥
