Boo Hoo


I was so excited to finish the second clue for the Boo MKAL and was knitting away on clue three when I realized I was off a stitch.  I was off a stitch because I hadn't stopped to read the instructions for row 7 which says to move your markers over 1 stitch.  I was at row 9 which was not coming out properly and after fiddling for over an hour I finally read the pattern.  Duh.  So now I need to tink (that's knit spelled backwards for you none knitters) back 2 rows or about 800 stitches.  My norm is to rip and go but this being lace I decided the more prudent approach is to tink.  Not a process I wanted to deal with so instead I cast on something new.

As Jim said "That's a big ball of yarn!"
And yes it is.
  1717 yards of Wollmeise Lacegarn in amethyst dark given to me a few years ago by a wonderful friend.
It has now been cast on to become Viajante by Martina Behm.
Yarn from Germany for a shawl by a German designer.
And what's even better I truly think this is a hard design to mess up - I hope.


  1. Pretty yarn! I love the color.

    Don't worry, you will sort out the lace thing and you will sail through Viajante. :)

  2. Tink 800 stitches? That's gonna leave a mark on your psyche. You may need some REALLY good wine AFTER that job is done!!! :-)
