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!
