Mr. Aitch and I are finally back home from an extended vacation out west. Along the way, we stopped to visit friends and family. While stuck on the Interstate due to an accident, I began knitting a shawl based on the beginning of the Kindness shawl.
I didn’t want to deal with constantly looking at my work so I changed from stockinette stitch to plain garter stitch. For non-knitters that means I knit every row.
Mr. Aitch drove the entire trip (his choice) which meant that I could knit when not navigating or knitting the row with the eyelets and the row after.
I didn’t win but at least I figured it out before I got too far into the lace motif. The Kindness shawl is off the needles and blocked. I had 48 inches of yarn left after I did one row of the lace motif and an extra row of knitting.
I love it!
I love the colors.
I love the yarn.
It’s the perfect size to wrap around my neck instead of a bulky scarf.
And I only found one mistake. But I don’t care. At least it’s not a dropped stitch!
