Help! I'm knitting the Shetsoie shawl, which is basically garter stitch for a good length before breaking into feather and fan. Simple enough. I was knitting on the bus, and as I walked home, and as I watched a lovely movie in French. Now I face the consequences...I just stopped to count, and behold, I had one stitch too many on one side. Upon inspection, I found a simple mistake that should have been avoided if I was *watching* as I worked. So my predicament is this...how to fix it. It is a good way back, but it is near the edge. Is it reasonable to think I can fix this without tinking all the way back, nor wanting to stick myself with my needles? In the picture, if you follow the curve of my finger, you will find the north star. Or should I say "black hole."
Oh, and by the way...I learned at knitting circle that the shawl is pronounced "shet-SWAH" instead of my silly "SHET-so-ee." Pardon my French.
And by the by the way, careful observation will reveal that the enlightening discussion on the ideal set of needles led me to the Harmony Options set. I got them with lace in mind, but when anything else comes...don't mind if I do! I just wish they offered the same needle with natural wood colors.
