Diana dropped a stitch on her lace wedding shawl :O Also she can’t read her own notes and had to rip back her Exploration Station because she grabbed the wrong colour.
Jocelyn got one of the ladies at knit club to rip back a large portion of her Northern Plains Shawl (coming soon!) because she read her own pattern wrong and while it still looked good was not suitable for a pattern photo. Her cat attempted to help with the Triple Treat Shawl resulting in its rebirth as a Stormy Sky Shawl.
Yarn on the Go
The great blocking party occurred, and the Evenstar/Wedding Shawl was finished!
Sew Little Time
Jocelyn continued work on a summer dress for herself, and has been working on some market bags for upcoming craft markets.
