When my third attempt at the border stitch pattern on the cherry shawl didn’t work out I stuffed it in a bag in frustration. Today I had some time to focus on it, and enough time had passed that I no longer hated it and I started ripping back ready to start again.
I’ve spent all day messing around with charts in illustrator, swatching, ripping and moving symbols about but I think I have something I’m happy with. The shawl is even growing again. I’m feeling rather enthusiastic about this project now, so I’m very glad I didn’t rip the whole thing out when it was annoying me.
