When I finished stitching and cut the second shawl off, I pondered the errors. I remember when I was a member of the Tuesday Weavers, we would joke about errors, asking the philosophical question: Is it a mistake, or is it a design element? Another way to think about it is the perennial question: If an error falls in the warp and no one sees it, does it really fall?
Look at the topmost repeat of the pattern and see if you can see the mistake. I see it right away, but when I look at the entire shawl, it disappears. The two threads running together is much more difficult to see, nearly impossible, unless you happen to be hem-stitiching.
So, after a day of agonizing--slight exaggeration; there was little agony--I decided to go ahead with the third shawl without fixing the errors. Two already had them! If anyone notices the errors, well, they are keen-eyed and fierce.
The next colorway for the flawed, or over-designed, warp is the grey tencel back as tabby warp, and the sage green carpet warp I wondered about last week. The beads I chose came out perfectly with the warp and wefts. I'm not crazy about the purple with the sage green, but overall, I think it does all right. And I'm to the point in this project that I'm thinking about what's next, as usual. I have some lovely red and purple bamboo waiting in the wings, or what about the fire red and orange warp? Or should it be dish towels? Oh, the possibilities!
