Apache Tears Redo
Two weeks ago, I shared the first twelve rows of the Apache Tears pattern I was using to make a prayer shawl. The above photo shows what I had finished, so far. My intention was to use a variegated rose yarn as the fourth stripe, and as the week went on, I did that, plus another repeat. So I thought I would have 32 rows done, but in the middle of the thirty-second row, I ran out of the variegated yarn! When I was trying to decide what to do, I discovered that I had completely missed the fourth row. Being the conscientious crafter, I had to frog all rows back to the third row, and, as long as I was there, I decided to add four more colors to the mix. I am really happy I did that, and this is the result, so far.
