Ok, The secret project has been shipped and received very well. So lets start from the beginning. Lobster Pot yarn was turned into a shawl for my Auntie C, who lives on Cape Cod. I made the pattern up as I went. All Was going well, I was knitting the border on and closing in on the end. Guess what happened?
Yep I ran out of yarn. I called the store and no there was not any more and no real way way of getting another hank. So I stood there looking at it on the floor thinking. I only needed a few yards more. Well I was thinking about my triangle shawls and how one bunches up at the neck and how another doesn't stay on my shoulders. They needed a notch! Eureka!! I undid the cast on and unraveled it a few rows.
(I had to undo a little more then the picture shows)
When I finished the border I went back to the neck stitches and using a crochet hook finished the neck. Off to blocking it went.
It so worked!! I am very happy with the results. So much so I almost kept it. = )
(I took these pictures late at night, so just look at the shawl ok?)
stays on with no problem.
Here is what was left. Not even a foot.
