.....knit to perfection!
It all started out as a shawl to take with me on my plane ride. You know how you will "hurry up and wait" at an airport...well, I remembered reading EZ saying about knitting a shawl while traveling "it is a perfect travel-knitting". And it is.
I cast on, at home, to get a good start and to where I would be able to knit round and round on a 29" circular needle.
Only thing was the tips of the diamonds were staring at me with unhappiness. Why? Because they were not "centered". Ugh! When I got home, I ripped [also known as frogged] back and started over.
As I got to the points....I stopped. I took a rest and watched my newly acquired DVD called "Knitting Lace with Meg Swansen
". Ah, ha! There it was! Just what I needed! A centered eyelet by Amy Detjen and demonstrated by Meg!
My fingers moved stealthily along, making all the points "perfect"!
I am knitting and doing the Happy Dance [in my mind]. I look forward to finishing up, blocking and wearing my lovely shawl.
NOTE: The yarn I am using is Burgandy 4-ply 70% Wool/30% Silk from Little Wool Company and made in New Zealand. It came in 1000 yards at 200 grams. I'm knitting with a US sz 10 circular needle.
