Bad hole.

First of all, I want to thank everyone for their righteous indignation on my part regarding the FRG. There's a bit more to the story, but I don't have the energy to regale it all here, nor do I feel like drawing more attention to the train wreck. So, for the time being I want to say thank you- I'm okay and not livid or sobbing- and let's leave it at that.

But, how about some (almost) pretties for distraction? The knitting is my coping mechanism, and it will be depicted thusly on my blog. Ready for the distraction?

One of these holes is not like the others...


Do you see the problem? This shetland triangle shawl is going to have to be frogged because of the gigantic hole. The gigantic hole that I didn't notice until after I'd woven in the ends, soaked and pinned the shawl out. Bad hole. This shawl is in time out.

Off to the frog pond.

Here's a closer look, without the bad hole:


Sigh. It was so pretty!

Those of you on Ravelry probably noticed that I updated my knitting projects today: Theoretically that means that I will have something to blog about for a little while!

Oh no! It hurts to look at it.

Besides that, though, it was beautiful, and it will be beautiful again. (I'm guessing you'll be obsessively checking every few inches this time. ;-) )

Lovely shawl!

If you have not yet frogged it, please try to use a crochet hook to fix it. You can use a tiny bit of yarn to tie off the loose stitch. I did that with a scarf I made. Didn't see the dropped stitch until I was blocking. After my fix, you couldn't tell.

You have my sympathy. R.I.P. Shetland Shawl. (No pun intended, but it did make me smile.)
