I love your sense of humor and willingness to post about the "errors". So nice to know someone else loses things and also frogs. I usually look to the cats when I cannot find something as they love to push stuff under couches. Just think how happy you will be when the shawl is Finally Done.

Could it be a matter of major blocking? The model looks quite tiny to me also - could it actually be smaller than it looks? How is your gauge compared to the stated gauge ?

Aw, sorry you had to frog, but you made the right decision. The color changes just don't work. Don't you hate when that happens?

I was looking forward to seeing it on a real person-- it looks great on the model. I think it's like the Civil War shawl- the picture and the name are what sell it. So romantic...

arrgh, hope I'm not sounding sarcastic. I just wanted a reality check on the pattern from a real knitter whose taste I trust - I lurk on kbth.

Oh, Junie, what a disaster! You're right, that did look distinctly clown-y, not lady-like at all! I know--you can use that yarn for something fun like a smaller version of the Yoga Wrap, and find some yarn to match the button to make the Lady! Copper and peach and creamy silver would look GREAT with your coloring!!

What about mixing it with a solid color and making the Thistle sweater. It might make the ugly duckling show it's true beauty.
