A shawlette made from Noro Kureyon Sock Colour S250.
That's all very jolly, but it's got a whopping great hole in it!!!
I started with three stitches and increased from there.
I don't know really know why I left it untouched for so long, but after I had soaked it for a short spell and went to rinse it, I saw it had a blinkin' hole in it!
I don't know what has happened here.
When I was knitting it I was very, VERY conscious of the whole thick> thin going on with the yarn.
Have I just been unlucky that a lot of thin areas have aligned and caused a weak spot?
Is it a splice which has gone wrong (I don't actually remember splicing it TBH.)
Or, worst case scenario, have critters got to it?
I feel a bit sick of it at the moment and don't imagine myself doing anything at all with it.
If it were feltable I'd blanket-stitch round the hole and make it the centre of a flower or a sunshine or something, but it's superwash, so no joy there.
I may secure it and then put a fancy button or knitted flower or even butterfly over it.
Covering it with a button may also be an option.
Jaywalkers, for instance, are six years old.
I may just cut it up and make it into embellishments of some kind.
What do you think?
And what would you do? x K
