Lucky accidents

I was trying to knit a sample for the shop so folks could see how beautiful this Elsebeth Lavold Bamboucle yarn is. So I just knit another Encircle, my collar pattern.

This yarn is a bit big for the pattern and I thought I'd have to pull it out and start over, but then I lay it down, then it slipped to the floor, and then I noticed how it naturally folded at the center of the lace pattern. Not only folded over but slid into a natural curve.

Now, just between us, the whole thing was an accident, but if I get compliments on this, I will just smile. No need to let the non-knitting world know. Keep them amazed and maybe they will learn to knit.
