Good Morning, KP Friends! I just finished a simple shawl using a single CARON Big Cake. I liked the mild asymmetry of this pattern and the self-striping feature. What I didn't plan for was finding a factory-placed knot in the dark grey section of yarn. I cut it out and re-joined the yarn at the piece's edge, but - as you see - it resulted in a "wrong-side" row showing up on the right side. As I was knitting along (garter stitch) I really wasn't paying attention to RS/WS. Didn't even really notice this until I was done! This will be a gift and I hope the recipient appreciates this as a design detail. Certainly too late to take out and re-do, nor would I want to. This would not have been as evident if color change was more gradual (as where honey color merges into brown) - this was darkest color of the cake transitioning into lightest color of the cake. I will watch for this in the future. Karen
Umm ... The maker always sees faults where no one else does. It's perfect as is; don't sweat it!
I don't find the small knots in the yarn that noticeable and therefore don't worry about it. In socks, I might but that little knot doesn't affect my knitting and crocheting. It is beautiful as it is and if it is a gift, I am sure the person receiving it, will not even notice what you see.
It's beautiful, sure the recipient will love it.
I am sure your friend will love this. It is well done and like a hug from you to her every time she wears it.
That's unavoidable with garter stitch. I think it looks fine.
Beautiful shawl! May I ask what pattern you used?
It is still a lovely piece of knitting.
Beautiful. Anyone would be pleased to receive it as a gift and wear it proudly.

It is beautiful and the recipient is very lucky!
Be sure to contact Caron. They need to know about this. Beautiful, but I see what you mean.
It's beautiful. Trust me. The recipient will be so happy they'll never notice.
Very pretty! I use a variety of brands of cakes and have been lucky when it comes to knots. Really, though, the only reason it stands out to YOU is because you know that is where the knot came into play, also the contrast of colors there. A non knitter will think it is the way it should be
It's very pretty! I don't think anyone else would see that as a problem, it just looks like little flecks of darker color in the white, like you wanted it that way.
You could tell her that is your signature.
