My matron of honor requested Sandi Wiseheart's Summer Lace Shawlette* for her bridesmaid's gift. This was my first attempt*:
There's a big mistake in the lace about two-thirds of the way down--I think I skipped a pattern row--and along the edges of the center lace panel, I think I started putting the yos on the wrong side of the ssk. Anyway, it's got mistakes, but I thought that maybe if I didn't have time to redo it, it'd pass.
Then I knit a second one*.
Yowza. Completely different. What was even going on in the first one? Look at the lace.
After some musing, I think I was knitting two together through the back loops every time I was supposed to just be knitting two together. No wonder it didn't look like the pattern picture. I iz dumb.
