OK, so I just frogged the first 85 rows of my Corner to Corner Shawl. "Why did you do that, Roxane?" I hear you ask. Well. I had screwed up at some point--I'm guessing at about row 70 or so--so I intended to dutifully unknit about 15 rows. Gentle reader, it is very hard to unknit a lace pattern on laceweight yarn (Alpaca Cloud in this case) on size 3 needles. My eyes really aren't up to it any more, even though my eye doctor says I'm 20/20 with my glasses, and even the point of the Harmony wood needle isn't as acute as one would like when one is trying to undo a microscopic SK2P.

So, I'm off to Kinko's. Because, 20/20 or no, the original problem was that I misread the chart. I'm getting the blasted things--there are three for this project-- enlarged. And I'm going to format them so that I can hold them horizontally; they are printed on the diagonal to fit them onto the page, and I've been contorting myself all over the place trying to read it as the rows get longer. I usually do enlarge the charts before I start a project, but in this case I was too eager to get started. So my new resolution is, Always Enlarge the Chart. Period. No argument. Go To Kinko's. Go Directly; Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $200.
