I said I’d post my progress on pattern #4. Huh – everything went along fine until I around row 10 or so. Now this pattern was from a very well known source, so I figured I was safe to knit. Nope. My first lace row was off. I counted and counted again. Then frogged and knitted again. To no good end. I finally counted the stitches in the last row before the lace row and discovered the pattern was 4 stitches off. Not me (for once) it was the pattern.
*Extremely heavy sigh….* Is this some cosmic sign that I should not be making this shawl??? Does anyone have a fail safe, error free shawl pattern – not to hard, not to simple????
Now I am determined to find a pattern that I both like and will work. Downloaded 4 this afternoon and one of them better be OTN and working out correctly by tomorrow evening after work. It has been a week. I should be at least 1/2 done.
Maybe this is a test of my patience. If so I am losing the battle!
