WHAT? I was aghast!She had to point out the missing bar. Yup. There was a gap and no green bar and picot. I had looked and looked at this little motif, very lovingly; I might add, as I really admire the design. I did not see the missing stitches till they were pointed out.
Can you see the problem in the first picture?

Ahhhh. Here it is. Complete. I ate in peace.
So did my cat!
Krystle' s HDT, the darker green, brewed up in an experimental batch
by Dr. Von Threadmore.... and Yarnplayer's Rhubarb Pie. Both #20.
Another lesson. I fought with myself about whether to fix it or to leave it, and on and on and on... Easier to just realize that I will correct the mistake and there doesn't have to be a good reason to do so. It is just for my own satisfaction to attain a sense of completion. It took three minutes - no kidding - to fix. No big deal and certainly not worth the useless mind chatter that erupted in my noggin all day about should I or shouldn't I fix the darn thing!
Tatting presents a multitude of life lessons if I pay attention. Microcosms in a double stitch.
I'm glad I got lost in the woods.
