I still can't decide which way to go with the shawl. Frog it? Keep knitting and hope blocking works its magic?
I'm over halfway finished. I have a secret suspicion that frogged yarn is cursed. I have one ball of Araucania Atacama gorgeous handpainted alpaca that refuses to be anything. ANYthing. Whatever I try with it fails. I'm afraid that would be the fate of this yarn.
I may have to swear off handpaints all together. I dabbled a little with overdyed pearl cottons when I first started with Hardanger. The colors were so attractive; so alluring. After a couple of disappointing results, I made my shop owner promise to NEVER sell me anything but white or ecru no matter how much I begged. She was to refuse to sell them even if I came up to the counter with them. She's done her part and I'm much happier now.
