This....is a River.
Ha. Not so complete, eh? After a few repeats, I decided that the size 10 1/2 needles, while probably fine for the Kid Silk Haze, was entirely too large for this Alpaca Cloud. At first I thought that it was just because I'm new to lace knitting that I couldn't really get a feel for the look of the pattern, but after a few repeats I realized that it wasn't me, there really wasn't a pattern to see because ALL the holes were too darned big. I wish I'd thought to take a picture before ripping it out, but I was just so...well....let's just say that I've been a bit tired and on edge and leave it at that, shall we? It's not the yarn's fault, or the shawl's fault, or even the needle's fault really, and I certainly didn't mean to throw them, but it might have happened. Plus, I COULD have swatched, right? But who swatches for a shawl? No one, not even me. Have I mentioned that I love swatching? I do, I love the swatch. Remind me to show you the swatch box some day. La, la,la...huh? Oh yeah - getting back to River. I'm hoping to cast on AGAIN this weekend, and I'm thinking about dropping to size 9's. Jody went to size 7's, though, and she's using the same yarn.....hmmm.....what to do, what to do?
