back to my shawl
February 4th: that's the last time I worked on my Heartland Lace Shawl. Imagine that - the shawl has sat neglected in a heap in my living room for almost three months! Long enough to completely forget where I was in the lace pattern. Long enough for the fear of picking it up and going wrong to grow to ridiculous proportions. Definitely too long to let the neglect go on any longer.
The first few rows were shaky, particularly when the stitch count was wrong on the right side of my first attempted row. Took me a while to check my pattern rows, count and recount, mutter a bit under my breath and then tink back a few rows to fix a missed yarnover. Thank goodness that's fixed. One more repeat of the Bison Tracks lace, I think, and then on to the River of Life edging. Can I finish by May 4th? Maybe.
