Slubs, thin spots, single plys and loops all attempted to thwart my finishing the shawl. Strange that I didn't notice any of these problems when I was winding the skein. I have another ball from the same dye lot in my Charlotte's Web Kit and must remember to check it before I begin.
Now that the shawl is blocking and no longer a blob I like it. The vision is clear and the colors are great, even the brown.
It should be dry by the time I get up in the morning. I'll unpin and stash it away for mom's return and photo op. There's quite a bit of leftovers from 4 of the colors. I was tempted to order an additional skein of each. Instead I think that I'll wait until I finish the other kit and see if I have enough for a mini scarf.
