Major blunders

Take a close look at the Swallowtail Shawl budding lace section. It has a major blunder. It's not the wonky looking YO (that was fixed). It's a much bigger issue.

Go ahead, I'll wait.

This shawl is just giving me fits. It's not hard, but I keep messing it up. Lesson: don't knit on a deadline.

I think I'll still get it done (I am 1/2 through with the border) but it is not going to be my best lacework ever. Eh.

Don't see it... so it can't be that bad :)

I love the colour!

I haven't done the shawl so I don't know what it's supposed to look like, but after staring for a few minutes I picked this up...

Okay, so on the right hand side of the ridge, at the place where the upper left hand corner of each cluster meets the ridge, there's an extra little hole. Is that what you're talking about?

Seriously, if it took me that long to find it, it can't be bad!

I don't see it, but I never see my mistakes either--until it's waaaay to late to go back.

I don't see it either. Just drink a lot of booze on your cruise so you'll forget about it! Ha ha ha.

I still think your shawl is gorgeous, and nobody will see it. Have a great time, and I hope to see you before you leave!
