As I suspected, there was a knot in my skein of Kauni, hence the anomaly in the striping sequence.
The knot was in the tan section that I commenced knitting after my blog post yesterday. While the knot tied the tan section to a matching tan section, it did so from the wrong side, so that if I were to continue knitting along, the striping sequence would reverse.
So I untied the knot and wound the remainder of the skein into a ball.
As luck would have it, the ball ended in a tan section as well — this end going in the proper direction. So I attached the yarn from the other end and continued on my merry way.
And I finished the shawl.
Unblocked, it measures 52 inches across the top (the wingspan) and 26 inches down the center back.
I had 20 grams of my 160-gram skein left over.
Blocking will commence almost immediately.
Well . . . Lucy may have other ideas . . .
