L A C E - What Happened?

I decided to whip up a few lace scarves and thought I would sit at my Brother electronic standard tonight to get gauge, size and pattern ready to go for tomorrow.

Not sure what the heck happened but each pattern I programmed gave me the same design.  Being that I don't normally do this type of lace (I prefer FNR lace for scarves with ultra fine yarn) thought maybe I am doing something really out of whack.

So, I actually pulled out the instruction manual from the machine (I felt like a rookie again) and followed along as a beginner using the step by step instructions.  Same thing happened.....I tried my dial on N-L, KCl & KCll thinking that would fix it....NOT.  Interesting when I set the carriage dial on N-L per the Brother manual, I get stockinette.

Has this ever happened to you?  Maybe I should go back to my FNR scarves?

Perhaps I am just too tired from two very long days at is my mess for the night.
