I am with you, I hate the central spine in triangle shawls. That's why I favor crescent shaped shawls. Also I don't like the long tail of triangle shaped shawls


My opinion as well.

It was knit alternating the variegated yarn and solid brown every 2 rows. Then the "valleys" on each end were filled in with crochet stitches of varying heights. Finally a border of 3 rows (brown, variegated, brown) of double crichet were added to complete the blanket.

What a precious little angel she is! You couldn't go wrong with any of the lovely gowns--how special that you have family heirlooms lovingly created by three generations from which to choose!

I lost my place on written patterns, charted patterns.... until somebody introduced me to a tape, similar to post-it-notes, that you can cut to the appropriate length for your line, and move each time you finish a row. I buy mine at Staples, but I imagine whatever big box office supply store you frequent will have it. I think that's the only reason I've had the nerve to try Shetland Lace.


By keeping my patterns in clear plastic page protectors, I find the tape retain its tackiness longer.

Give yourself a great big pat on the pack for spotting the errors and working out a solution!

I always have some of those safety pin-like stitch markers and crochet hooks in the notions pouch (small cosmetic bag) in my knitting bag, as well as in a bowl on my living room table. They've saved me hours of work many times over!

Good luck on Saturday!

Guess what? I still find I've done that, despite playing with yarn and sticks since 1954. Learn to recognize it, and to fix it; it's a safe bet you'll be doing it again.

It happens to the best of us! As you progress/practice you'll be able to recognize errors, and by studying them a bit you'll be able to identify what went wrong and (hopefully) a potential fix without to much tinking or frogging. And by all means, don't hesitate to do as you have here, and ask for assistance when needed!

For knitting from the outside, I cut a hole in an orange juice container and put in the yarn. Keeps it from bouncing and I have the handle of the container to carry it around. It is cheaper than a lovely ceramic yarn bowl and won't break if I drop it.


MarilynKnits, what do you use to cover the cut edges so that they don't snag the yarn?
