It's (not a) Mystery
Yes, it's Wendy's Summer Mystery Shawlette. So that mystery isn't a mystery anymore.
On Wednesday, I knit the first two rows of the first chart while we were coming back from a quick visit upstate. I was very proud of myself for knitting the lace row in the car despite a bumpy road, two phone calls and a text message received. Plus the hubster turned into a Chatty Charlie and wanted to discuss some Deep Thoughts.
Today, I picked up the shawlette to finish the rest of the chart before the next clue is released on Sunday and. . . . AAAAARGH! Each half of the shawl has a 12-stitch pattern that's repeated 7 times. However, it appears that I knit 6 repeats on one half and 8 on the other.
It's no mystery how that happened! I was distracted and, since all the stitches were accounted for, never gave it a thought to check. Lesson learned!
