As soon as I laid it out, I immediately noticed something was wrong....can you see it? Towards the upper left edge? Here's a closer look at the huge freakin' hole!
Curses! I must have dropped a stitch in one of the last rows before I started knitting on the lace edging. I'll have to wait for it to finish drying and see if I can get this straightened out, because this is the shawl I'm planning to donate to the Potholes and Prairie Birding Festival next week for their silent auction.
I've also been working on some hats. Here are a couple of the completed ones for Kristy's Hat Quest.
In the picture below, the striped one on the right is going for Kristy's Hat Quest too. For the light green one with cables (left), I'm using a fabulous yarn that is 70% baby alpaca and 30% cashmere. I just love knitting with this yarn! I keep having to stop and fondle the hat or hold it up against my face because it's just so soft. I hope the special friend I'm knitting this for isn't allergic to these fibers......I bought this alpaca/cashmere yarn on a clearance sale and only purchased 4 balls. I wish now I had gotten bunches of it. I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep the last 3 balls all for myself!
