I had imagined that I'd get Lotus Blossom done in time to wear at my friends' wedding Saturday. I was up blocking it at about 2:00am Friday night:
Whoops. Yeah, that's not a blocking error. One side is longer then the other. By a few inches. I counted repeats to see how I could have made that big of a mistake. Nope, not that.
What happened is that I must have carried the yarn too tightly when I was going back and forth between balls every couple rows. Since you only drop/pick up along one side, it didn't have enough give to block out as much as the other. I was trying to make sure I left some slack, but lace gets stretched out a lot.
Oh well, chalk it up to a lessoned learned. You can't see it when it is on.
It was a little cold after all the rain and I was happy to have stayed up and finished it. Hubby even said it was nice and liked to pet it- which is saying a lot!
On other news, my spinning looks like something the cat left behind. It was a nice colorway, but obviously I don't know how to work with these colored rovings quite yet. At least it wasn't one of my dye jobs I messed up!
