Okay, I finished chart 3, and on to chart 4, only to find out that I'm stalled. The chart/instructions don't seem right to me, so I've written to the designer, and she looked at her notes, and..
This morning I got my reply...
I am RIGHT! I am RIGHT! I couldn't believe it, but I'm not as stupid as I look, and apparently I know a little more about charting lace than I thought.
You DO have to move the marker back one stitch for the last chart to come out right.
I feel so vindicated. My next shawl will be my own design. I can hardly wait.
But first, Catkin. I am really, quite suddenly, in love with the pattern, and I think I'm either going to make it in autumn colors, or sky colors--it's got me SO hooked.
And now that I feel like Super Knitter, I think I can handle it.
Have a nice Labor Day.
