Not the knitting project, I'm glad that's done, but I'm talking about the network problem that shut down my ability to upload pictures. Due to a catastrophe involving Sympatico tech support changing our account password, which caused the router not to work any more, I was only able to get one computer online. That computer belongs to Ed, and I didn't think I should be installing photo upload software on it that I have "concerns" about. (Maybe someday I will describe the hoops I jump through to upload photos.)
But Ed has returned from up north and fixed everything, and here it is:
I purchased the Peacock Feathers shawl by Dorothy Siemens at Fiddlesticks Knitting over two years ago for a KBTH lace-along, and I did the swatch. I don't know what happened with the lace-along, I'm not really good at keeping up with these things. But, well, I'm done now. I didn't exactly plug away consistently on the shawl for all that time (the swatch spent about 18 months in the bag, to be honest).
I had a really hard time doing other things while knitting this shawl, but it wasn't exactly hard to do. I just had to pay attention. I have a really hard time finding the mistake I made (I figured it would block out -- I forgot to do a K3Tog about 30 rows from the end, and when I tried to fix it, I wound up with some really loose strands, and for a couple of minutes, I thought I was just going to have to rip everything out and start again).
I was just photographing it while Ed was reading me an article out of Pilot magazine, and I don't think he realized it's done. I wonder if he'll notice before he reads about it here?
