On Monday I shared my terrible phone pics of my handspun color affection shawl. Here are some spectacular blocking pics.
As I was blocking and stretching ….. I found a dropped stitch in the third section….. My knitterly heart started to race …oh the horror!!!!!!…… a dropped stitch …mid-project and it was already bound off. Crap! What’s a yarny girl to do?
Then I came up with a plan ….I wasn’t sure it would work but it was definitely worth a try so that stupid dropped stitch would run like pantyhose. I dropped the stitch on a grey stripe …so I took some grey yarn I had left and darning needle I weaved in the tail (like for weaving in ends) about 5 stitches before the dropped stitch, I picked up the dropped stitch so it would be looped through the yarn and then continued weaving in the other side in the same manner. It seems to have worked! I didn’t think to take pictures as I was doing this …in my own defense I was having a knitterly panic attack. I did take some after photos though.
My new project midwinter wanderer is coming along nicely. I did some fiddling with different types of needles and lengths of cord but my nickle needles and 24 inch cable seem to be working well for this project.
