You are much more meticulous than I!  Cheesy I found that I missed a stitch a few rows back on my Secret Paths shawl, but did I rip it out to fix that mistake? Um....no. lol. I think I covered up the missed stitch pretty well - it'll be hard to pick out over all, so I'm not sweating it.

Im not always like this, if it isnt going to be that visible I ignore it or cover it up too. This was going to affect the shape of the shawl, so I redid it.

Made good progress and I finished part 3 of the pattern! Yay!
Then I started part 4 and after 1 row I discovered that part 3 needed 2 more rows, oops! Wink
So I picked row 1 and now Im working on row 32 of part 3 haha!
I really should read and check it better!

Jennie that sounds great! That is no stash but a treat Cheesy

Need some help from the rest of you. I rarely order craft supplies on-line but I need some Lion Brand Mandala yarn to make Jenny Galusha-Luna's "Anna's Shawl". I shopped in-store at JoAnn's and Michaels yesterday; no luck. I know I can probably find it on-line but I want to know who you've used and find reliable. Thanks for any suggestions!

I found some at Meijer but I think that is a regional store (mostly Michigan but I've seen them as far as Kentucky). Looks like Walmart is carrying that line too. You may be able to order from Walmart online or have it sent to a store near you for you to pick up.  It also looks like you can order directly from LionBrand but I would compare prices since shipping will be a factor. For me personally, I trust Amazon and it usually ships fast.

Looks great, Jennie! I'm finished. Will post it later. I've been pretty busy helping the last two kids prepare for tests that are happening all next week. We will be at a testing site for several hours every day next week so I need to choose a new project to work on.

That looks wonderful! The colours are playing out so nicely.
This sweater is made from mandala and while it is not a shawl I thought some of you who have large collections of this yarn Wink might like seeing the colours striped like this. It looks really neat and gives me ideas.

I came so close to buying some more yarn at Joann's earlier this week. I managed to restrain myself though. Barely.  Wink
