So Ive decided to name my first in progress lace shawl my "WHAT...THE...FUCK" shawl....why? Because it is playing tricks on me I dont understand. I had to frog it 4 times today before I could even get past row ten because the pattern instructions werent clear as to whether or not to do a double YO in the center between the two sides. Once I got that concept clear in my head, I got to the END of the first repeat of the pattern...on my second to last row, and then all of a sudden I find at the end I am missing a stitch...How? I dont know, I even undid my knitting back halfway (at this point there is a good 80 stitches on my needle) and tried it again...same thing...So as of right now I have had it with this thing for today, Im going to bed and will work on it tomorrow with a clear head. The pattern is "Gail (aka Nightsong)" on Ravelry if anyone cares to look it up and give me some helpful hints. This is my first shawl and first time doing lace and perhaps a little too advanced for me...But im determined to finish it. So if anyone has any ideas as to where my phantom stitch went please let me know cause Im going to give it a good talkin to.
