… when you’re working on an ever-increasing pattern, and you’re down to the last stretch of one row… only to find a mistake you made at the BEGINNING of the previous row.
Seriously. I’m at row 2 of the lace edging of the All Shawl, which at this point is friggin’ HUGE (and I’m making it fairly short, at least for a shawl) and I had to rip out almost ALL of the lace that I’d done so far.
To give it some context, here’s the most recent uploaded photo:
I’ve done a lot more than it shows in this photo (and have taken more recent ones, just didn’t upload them yet). There’s 15 rows of burgundy, 3 rows of the Beach Belle, 15 more rows of burgundy, 3 more rows of the Beach Belle, and 8 rows of burgundy to get to the lace edging. It’s nearly finished, and might have been finished tonight if I hadn’t had to send it to the Frog Pond.
Oooon a happier note…
Birthday shout-outs go to my mother and my nephew Luke, who both had birthdays today (okay, technically yesterday but I’m still up, so to me it’s today). It’s kind of freaky the way my husband’s side of the family have the EXACT SAME BIRTHDAYS as some of the people on MY side of the family. One set of birthday-sharers even have the same FIRST NAME!
Freaky, I tell you. F-R-E-A-K-Y.
