From Susan — From 8% to 2%

Filed under: Peacock Shawl -- Susan's,Uncategorized — lv2knit @ 6:29 pm

Now, don’t tell me NONE of you spotted the mistake on my Peacock Shawl!!  I’m sure you were trying to be nice and not say anything, but…

I changed the picture — no one could figure it out!

A misplaced yarnover, WAY-Y-Y back there!  The point of a lifeline is to make sure there are NO MISTAKES before the lifeline is placed!  I think it’s a really good idea to photograph these things — I did not the spot the mistake otherwise.  However, once you know it’s there, what are ya gonna do?  Oh well, a few days knitting on this end and a glaring mistake averted — well worth it.


  1. Wait, I can’t quite see it with the red circle and arrows — is it an extra YO? If it were me, I would try to sew it shut, but since I’ve never knit a lace shawl I don’t know how bad the fix would look. Maybe even worse? Well, you’re the expert.

  2. I didn’t notice it until you pointed it out. I’m surprised you didn’t catch it on the next row. That sucks. Sorry!

  3. Susan- Oh crap- I didn’t notice it, but you did. Better now than later.

    Another advantage to blogging. A nice person noticed that my cables were wrong
    on Kilkenny and I was so grateful she pointed it out.
    Mistakes have a way of haunting you.

  4. You’re a stronger woman than I am! That’s one of those mistakes I would have happily ignored!

  5. From Susan — I thought of ignoring it, but decided to bite the yarnover, take my medicine, and be happier in the long run! I’ll have the shawl for a lifetime — what’s a few more days of knitting?
