There was a bit of discussion in the comments yesterday about the presence of knots in skeins of yarn and the varying emotions that rise at the sight of said knots.
Me, I’m not overly concerned about a single knot in a skein. And in this case (in my skein of Kauni) some care was taken that the newly-joined yarn be the same col0r. It’s kind of amusing that the striping sequence was reversed. Had I not noticed and just continued knitting along, it would not have been the end of the world, either.
I think when you are dealing with yarns like this (and Noro) you have to make the decision to just roll with it and not let these anomalies bother you or you could drive yourself nuts. Just my opinion.
But there have been times when I’ve had a skein of good quality yarn with multiple knots in one skein. There were at least 6 knots in a skein of yarn that had about 220 yards! That I do find unacceptable.
Lucy did consent finally to get off the shawl so I could block it last night. Then she got right back on it.
Blocked, it is 68 inches across the top and 33 down the center back.
Here’s a close-up:
