I was so excited to finally cast off my short rowed shawl last night. I wasn't happy with the cast on so I unpicked it (fairly easy as it was a crocheted cast on), and casted off the open loops. Then today, I soaked it and started pinning it out.
Mmmm. I noticed something wrong right off the bat.
I was missing one of the scallops on the lower edge!
I have no idea how this happened. And, it's in the section I did yesterday, so not even in the early part when I was getting used to the pattern.
Since it is towards the end of the shawl, I think I will rip it back. That won't be fun, all those little bitty short rows, and then getting it back on the needles, but I really can't bear it like it is. I am also a little surprised that the yarn created a halo when soaked--it's bamboo/nylon blend sock yarn. Perhaps a trip in the dryer would get rid of that, but since it needs to be blocked, I obviously don't want to totally dry it. But right now, it's laying on my floor, damp, so it needs to dry before I can rip it back :( I guess it was a good thing I didn't immediately cast on for the next project on that machine! Off to do other stuff.
