…is human. To be able to pick it up, divine. Dropping stitches in lace and then not being able to see it had been one of my biggest fears (before I had my daughter). But not anymore… Not only did I knit this thing in 10 days but I also corrected a mistake without having to run a safety (or freaking out) I just “read” my knitting, referred to the chart and I saw where I went wrong. I feel so fantastic right now.
Here’s Ishbel…(thank you Carolyn for your excellent photography skills, while holding my babe, no less)
Notes: No modifications at all. I knit as I was told. The only thing I would do different is block it bigger. I was in to much of a hurry to see it finished.
I can so understand why people have knit more than one of these. I loved every stitch, the yarn and the pattern.
I asked for blocking advice from knitters who’ve made this and other shawls… (I’m a complete shawl novice). And according to what was said I did everything wrong, except waiting until it was completely dry to move it (thanks Maritza).
There it is on my kitchen table pinned to a towel (Forgive me Michele but those wires were freaking me out).
Obviously it worked out just fine. More than fine if I may say so…
