Round Blanket Disappointment



This is Heidi's Round Lace Tablecloth. I made a white version for Megan. This is the giant skein of Bernat Baby Soft DK that I bought at Listowel in the summer (I added pictures to that post awhile ago, including one of the giant skein).


Looks okay from the top view.


Not so from the side view. In fact, it's so bad, Blogger won't display the photo, despite saying it's been loaded! There is major poofing. Almost as if I did too many sections. I thought about taking out some sections, but the problems are more in the inner half of circle...the outer portions lay flat. So it's a problem of the short row design in relation to the row gauge of the yarn.
Oh my, things just went crazy and my photo appeared!
I think it might be improved by taking out a section or two, but then the outer edge might cup under like Megan's does.
So...keep? Or frog? Or partially dissect?

The original posting of this post included a story about a troll in a parenting group I'm in.  I've moved that part of the post to my other blog!  That's why the comments seem to be not related to this post :)

Know It Alls. They are amazing sometimes, and often lead to sore tongues in the people who have to listen to them.

One of the Elann knitbloggers is a midwife in Alaska, just north of Anchorage. She seems very caring and rational, and I'm enjoying reading her blog. http://lisamidwifeknits.blogspot.com/

Could you try blocking the heck out of your blanket and see if that does the trick? It looks so nice, it'd be a shame to rip pieces out.

Loved reading your anecdote on the wingnut giving her psychotic advice! Keep us posted! :)
