Remember when you were a kid playing a game and you didn’t do as well as you wanted to so you shouted “Do Over!” Well, after completing 7 repeats of the second chart on the Swallowtail Shawl, I’ve decided that the finished garment may fall short of the desired size. Therefore, I declaring it a “Do Over!”
Before taking this heroic step now that I’ve completed half of the requisite 14 repeats (or 42 rows of lace knitting), I consulted with Alyssa the manager of The Point. She thought that the lace would expand once blocked but she agreed that, given that I was knitting lace, larger needles would be a good idea. So I’m frogging this shawl and starting over using size 6 needles.
