Test knitter found a boo-boo

Test knitter found a boo-boo in the beginning of my chart 5; 100 rows into the pattern and 100 rows behind where I have already charted. Luckily I was able to finagle things and restrict the changes to that chart. Hopefully I haven't done the same further on.

Test knitting temporarily halted at row 106, while a few of us play catch up. I personally am on row 83 of the knitting, and am writing up the section from rows 217 to 247. The final round of sunrays is closing inwards on themselves and the filet lace firecats heads are in this section.

I'm all the way up to row 101! At least one test knitter is two charts ahead of me....*grin* I am slowed down a bit by making the corrections to the pattern - and writing the pattern!

There are quite a few out there; and many many more if you read "furrin" (french, german, italian, the various scandanavian languages). I'm too cheap to buy patterns so I write my own.

My goodness, that is gorgeous. What a feast for the eyes. I can't recall you knitting with anything but a solid colour. I like this and the subtle statement it makes.
