Pat's Knitting and Quilting
May 21, 2009
I've been faithfully knitting along on my beautiful lace shawl - My 1st knit of the day - 4 rows every morning. It is always scrunched up in my lap and on my needles. I never even spread it out to look anymore because I know this pattern now - I'm SO sure of myself with it - every row is lining up perfectly and it will be done in 5 days.
Not once, but twice I made a huge honking error - how did I do that TWICE? How did I miss seeing this blatant error over and over again while knitting on it for months? It's very obvious now - I know exactly what I did. If you look at the center 8 row repeat, everything is perfect. I repeated the 1st 4 rows of the edging chart twice (Those 4 rows are the same and line up, so while knitting I couldn't tell. Instead of knitting row 5, I knit row 1 again when my chart keeper was knocked off or something). Can I live with it? YOU BET I CAN!

Next time you see my Alpine Lace Shawl, there will be no mention of this - It will be blocked, beautiful and I'll be happily wearing it around my shoulders!
Got my tsock kit for Daughter of the Regiment - what a sock art masterpiece!
Aren't the little boot laces great?
