I thought I would challenge myself, so I signed up for a shawl knitalong. The yarn was a lovely cashmere lace weight, a special price for those who signed up and the pattern was free. Several weeks were allowed for the project. Did I mention that size 3mm needles were involved? And short rows? And lace charts? Perhaps I overextended myself. After a lot of dropped stitches and ripping back, I finished by the deadline. As I started to block it, I noticed a major mistake. I don't know how I missed it. Right in the middle of the back - lace holes in the wrong place. Can I live with it?
I am thinking about it.
But, this challenge did teach me a few things. Black was probably not the best color choice. Lighting is very important. A good manicure might have prevented snags and dropped stitches. Watching subtitled TV programs should have been left for another time.
I am still thinking.
