The Magical Fix

Many, many, many thanks to the talented Aryn of Knitty City, the best yarn store in NYC, for fixing the mistake.



I wasn't exactly honest yesterday. What you saw was not only the mistake, but also my attempt to fix it. And I wasn't going down that road by myself again!

Yarn Journey, a zillion million thanks to you for suggesting I ask my LYS for help. I would never have thought to do this. I probably would kept the shawl as it was and gradually grow to dislike it. All I would ever see is the mistake.

Aryn worked magic with the crochet hook. Isn't she amazing?! And, yes, Aryn is smiling in the photo. She was having a good time.



Perfect! I'm so pleased!



From all the fiddling, the stitches that were affected are a little loose. But blocking will take care of that. More magic!

Isn't it amazing what can be repaired by the talented folks at our local yarn stores. (My LYS is the Lancaster Yarn Shop, so my LYS really IS LYS.) Guess how many magic saves my pals at LYS have performed on my February Ladies Sweater so far???

Hooray for your shawl. It's bee-you-tea-ful again.

Great news! I am so glad it is fixed. The yarn is gorgeous, perfect for that pattern stitch.
