If you live in the Calgary area, you may have heard a blood-curdling scream at or about 10:45pm tonight. You may have actually heard it further afield, I'm not sure.

You see, I finished knitting a wrap I was working on. I pinned it out to block.


Ahh. So pretty. wait. What's that? There in the corner?

(the pin is there to try to stop the carnage...)

(... but... as I was taking the picture above, it ran even further)

At this point, I am just going to leave it for night, let it dry and look at it tomorrow. I threaded a piece of waste yarn in to the stitches just below where the run stopped. I'm not sure if I'll be able to figure out where it is in the lace pattern so I may need to frog the whole border. argh.


  1. Ahhh!!! You are living my worst nightmare!! I'm so sorry. Good luck.

  2. Yikes! And it's so beautiful! Good luck - I'm sure you'll be able to fix it, but ... how horrible!

    Thanks for all the comments on my blog, by the way :)

  3. Oh no! I would have screamed too!

    I hope you're able to fix it!

  4. How terrible! Other than that icky run, it looks beautiful! I hope you were able to fix it.

  5. Oh, how frustrating. I can feel the stitches run, and want to scream with you. It would be less of a tragedy if it happened to me, though, because i dont do anything anywhere near as fine and lacey.

  6. Oh no!! I hope you can fix it! But I'm sure that if you have to re-knit the border, it will be totally worth it. The rest of it looks gorgeous!

  7. As I posted on Craftser - how on earth did you fix that while keeping the lace pattern? It is a simply stunning scarf, and to my mind, much more wearable than a shawl.


Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'd love to hear from you.
