So there I was just knitting away when I realized what was off about my shawl. See, last night something felt wrong but I couldn’t tell what. Let’s see if you can find it.
Yeah, it’s pretty obvious. Since I get into work pretty early, I decided to make liberal use of the paper clip as a needle and threaded through where I needed to rip back to. But I did it for just the stitches in question.
This was pretty irritating because I didn’t have any of my tools with me, just the needles, and it was a bit of a big mistake. The one half was easier since no actual stitch work was happening there.
The other half needed to be done in pattern. I wouldn’t recommend doing this without some sort of hook if it is the first time that you’ve ever done an in-pattern fix. Otherwise just proceed row by row, right to left, keepin in mind which are purl rows as you go. It’s not hard, just slow. Yarn overs are probably the hardest one to do since you don’t often have reason to examine how it’s set up.
And there you go! Pretty cool, huh? Blocking will help smooth this bit out, but I’m pretty happy it isn’t as obvious as I thought it would be.
For those interested, the photos were edited with a Chinese photo ap for iPhone. It’s very intuitive, so I’d recommend it if you want one for the iPhone. Search for “Xiamen” and it’s the first result.
