Knits without the knack?

Scratch the last Aestlight shawl post.  That border is an example of what not to do with the pattern.  Figured that out all on my own when the needle was getting crowded with all the border stitches.  Doh!  That’s what happens when you add more lace stitches than you ditch.  Silly mistake but an easy fix as these things go.

Sorry if I misled any knitters on that one… As my (mad as shad) conveyancing teacher loved to say, “There’s many a slip between the cup and the lip.”  Promise to post a photo of a more tame border when one is in evidence.

Still on the shawl [neat bundle of “s” alliterations, eh?]… I’m calling it, “Bluefields Aestlight Shawl” for my Ravelry project page.  Bluefields is on Jamaica’s south coast.  Viewed from the old road it is the most beautiful stretch of coastline IMHO.  A pic:

Happy Friday, everyone!
