This is the knitting project I mentioned in my previous post. When it grows up it’s going to be a shawl. The original pattern is all garter stitch, and I actually started this shawl in a different yarn in garter stitch. But then I dropped some stitches and I’m a garter stitch idiot — I could NOT figure out how to pick them up. So I started over. And then I started over again on the trip. I’m pretty pleased with my progress, but I’ve got a long way to go, and right now it just looks like a big blob of pink. The sun washed the color out a bit, it’s much prettier and brighter and in person.
I started this Wednesday night last week (in the car…) and Thursday morning in the car? Bad words:
Fixing my boo-boo would have required ripping out all of the garter stitch border, and basically starting over. It appears that after casting on, I twisted the cast on row? I guess. Needless to say, I was not interested in restarting for a 4th time, and ultimately this is going to be seen by ME and my family, and I’d rather have DONE than PERFECT.
I’m having trouble with my camera, so I took some shots outside in the full sun.
The dogs could NOT figure out why I was outside taking pictures and they were inside watching me:
