I was finishing off this shawl this morning when I noticed that dropped stitch towards the end of the shawl would cause the whole thing to unravel. Now, I’m a decent knitter and all, but this is black lace friends – a challenging knit, to say the least! I was really disappointed at the idea that all the work I’d put into the piece might go to nothing.
Then I though a bit and realized I could tie off the mistake at the end, add a tassel to the shawl (the original pattern doesn’t have it) and still salvage the work.
Still, I’m ticked, as I am not generally a tassel fan. But it seemed the best way to salvage the error.
