I don’t have a picture, since our Rogers cable modem has been non-functional ever since the big crashing thunderstorm the other night, but I’ve been making progress on the Peacock Feathers shawl. I find myself at a bit of a crossroads. I reached the border chart, but on measuring arm lengths of wool & figuring out how many rows that will make, I’m about 10 – 15 rows short. Ugh.
The choices that I might try are:
a) try the border with the other ball of wool in the completely different dye lot & see if it looks cool
b) try the border with new unbought one-colour wool that matches one of the many colours in the main shawl
c) figure out a way to reduce the pattern by 12 rows somewhere not too terribly far back (the less math & graphing the better)
d) go back to row 107 & then skip 6 repeats of the peacock eye pattern (~50 rows) because it’s easy to do, except for all the knitting
I’m not sure if I’ve missed something obvious, but, well, I’ll see how things look after option a) is attempted and get some independent feedback.
