Notes

02-14-2017

This was definitely an adventure - almost a year of knitting. (Not, by any means, the only thing I was knitting… but a lot of the time it spent resting was me trying to avoid ripping it all back out of frustration!) This was waaaaay above my skill level when I started it, and it shows: the top diamond-feathering is highly irregular. As it turns out, the recipient of the shawl loves the more organic/chaotic look, which is awfully good. I’ve already got the yarn to make myself a coordinating shawl in different colors - learning from my mistakes (and taking very thorough notes including meticulous stitch counts for all but the last ten-fifteen rows) will hopefully make it a less stressful process.

Recording my stitch counts!

Rows 1-4: 77
Row 5: 99
Row 7: 105
Row 9: 117
Row 11: 135
Row 13: 147
Row 15: 153
Row 17: 165
Row 19: 185
Rows 21-24: 195
Row 25: 205
Rows 27-32: 221
Row 33: 245
Row 35: 247
Row 37: 251
Row 39: 273
Rows 41-44: 275
Rows 45-50: 297
Rows 51-56: 319
Rows 57-62: 343
Row 63: 365
Row 65: 369

This is the point at which the feather-tips are beginning to be shaped, and I got too into the pattern to keep taking notes. However, at this point, it’s pretty blatantly easy to see mistakes in the lace and correct!
