Yup - a big, fat slice of it.
The shawl edging problem has been resolved. I was so excited to finish knitting the body of the shawl that I neglected to fully read to the end of that paragraph in my pattern. Two measly words were all that I skipped: break yarn.
Yup, major lightbulb moment here for Sara. All I had to do was cut my yarn and I could happily cruise on with finishing the shawl! No blonde jokes, please!!
I think I'll help myself to another slice of pie, thank you.
