I will out myself as a complete idiot here, but I have discovered another mistake in my Mimosa Shawl! The knit stiches are supposed to be twisted, i.e., knit into the back leg. Yes, it is clearly stated in the instructions, yes, I remember reading it, and yes, in the whirl of broken needles, wrong size needles, and forgetting the rest rows I forgot to twist the knits! So sue me!
The designer, Andrea, says that I could just continue with the patters without twisting the stitches. A part of me wants to, but that other, loud and insistent, perfectionistic part, wants to frog.
I have not decided yet!
