no more tears…

ok, I didn’t really cry, but almost!  Over Mother’s Day weekend I found a mistake in my shawl.  Yes, it is hard to believe that careful me made a mistake but I did.  So I carefully tried to go back about 5 rows to correct it.  WRONG!!!  Good thing I had been putting in “lifelines” regularly… WRONG again!  I had to go back much, much further than I would have like to, but it simply must be done.  I just couldn’t live with a mistake in the middle of my shawl.

This picture was taken at my mom’s house sitting out in the sunshine with not a care in the world…

at mom's in the sunshine 

just knitting enjoying my mom’s company and feeling good!  The mountains in the background are just beautiful, I wish they would have shown up better in the picture.

Here we have the shawl enjoying the sunshine and the view!

Here we have the shawl on the guest bed before the big ripping!  (can you see the mistake in the middle of the shawl? Can you see the lifeline way, way, way back down there?)

Here we have the night knitting with the shawl once again beginning to grow.

Enough about my shawl for now.

  1. oh gosh. I knew ou had to do it, but it’s kind of sickening to see that pile of yarn, even if it is beautiful yarn! You’ll be happy you did it though.

  2. ps I love seeing your mom’s back yard. And the sock is really cool! You have to let me know what sweater patterns to get.

  3. Oh my, I am sorry you had to do that ripping. Someone told me recently, while I was ripping, “Good thing you like to knit.” The process is as fun as the finished product.
