Fixing it on the next row


Current project is a shawl, and it is lovely. It’s my first project from a chart, and my first major lace project. I’m not a good knitter, I am a knitter.

So I’m chugging along on the project last night. Lots of yarn overs, lots of left leaning decreases, lots of right leaning decreases, pretty much enjoying the process. I haven’t invested heavily into swear words quite yet. When I noticed.

Crap, I’ve screwed up. One segment is too fat, another too thin. Crap. I also noticed that the decreases on the row I am working are going to be off because I read them wrong. Crap crap crap.

So, I did what I could. On the knit the knits, purl the purls row, I fixed the wrong leaning decreases, and slipped one over the offending stitch in the fat segments. I also made one in the thin segments. Screw it. If someone wants perfetion in a shawl, then they can order it from a retailer.

Hugs, -L
