I recently traveled for about a week and a half. I made progress on the Chevron Scarf:
13 inches in. That's somewhere between one-fifth and one-sixth done, depending on how long it ends up being.
After knitting and blocking the swatch while traveling, I finally cast on the Kimono Shawl:
I'm almost done with the first repeat. I was actually a few rows closer when I realized that I missed a yarn over - 4 rows back. Aarggh! I hadn't put a lifeline in, because I was planning to finish the first repeat first.
I attempted to fix it by dropping four stitches back the four rows, but that made it worse. I tabled it until the trip was over and brought it to my knitting mentor. His verdict was: tink the four rows. I did this last night, but after purling a row to get me all caught up and clean, I found - a missing yarn over! So, one more row of tinking to fix that, and then I'll be ready to move forward again.
Oh, well, it's my first lace project. I didn't expect to be an expert!
