It’s finished. Hidcote Garden Shawl.
Yarn: 150 grams of Shadow, Jewel from Knitpicks
Needles: Size 2 pointy needles of flashy death, by Knitpicks
Lots of Stitch Markers.
Time: Sept 1st 2006 – Oct 4th 2006 (with side trips into cheating heart knitting)
Comments: Love it. Love it. Love it.
Humbleness Factor: I knew of 2 major problems in the shawl. 1) In the Field of Flower section there was a whole row off because I zoomed past it before waiting for a chart correction. Could deal with that 2) Problem with some of the double yarn overs in the lavender section. Something went horribly wrong, had to tink back 4 rows, and make it look almost kinda right in one section. Liveable. 3) Not found til I blocked it, a problem with the garden bed with a misplaced yarn over. UGH. (well more like *#$(& IT!) But, well, It’s way to far to fix it now eh? Guess a these errors show that even in shawl making, my ‘garden’ green thumb is dead. Black thumb!
My son was very cute though when he said “but mom, don’t start all over just for that error. I can hardly see it” lol ah nice.
Love the shawl and will be wearing it this weekend in SLC when I go to a Beth Moore convention (it’s a christian woman thing) Can’t wait!
Oh and it’s Huge. Even for me. And that’s just great!
Thanks for the pattern Mim.
