shawl update...

You know how when you are tired and frustrated you tend to jump to all sorts of wrong conclusions....
It is a good thing that I didn't completly overreact last night (I was almost ready to rip it off the needles!
Yes I've made an error somewhere in the pattern, and I am off by one stitch - but that will be easily fixable. The part I overreacted to last night was my fault - reading the wrong paragraph, which made me think that I'd been knitting the wrong stitches since the 7th row...I'm blaming it on the time change this weekend, and being stressed out.
I have more than 100 stitches on the needle already, once I get to 191 I start the lace pattern. Posted by Picasa

rOh Man, I feel you pain on that one! I have ripped out the last two rows of some Swedish folk mittens at least 3 times in the last day, argh!!! Sometimes stockinette has its benefits.

Oh gosh, I so feel with you! But I'm glad to hear that you didn't end up ripping the whole piece - you're right, it'll be easy to fix - and what you've knit up so far looks absolutely beautiful indeed!
