The space that is skipped in the middle is three rows. The rows consists of cutting threads. Now I'm not worried about cutting the threads but I have to somehow weave them back in around the edges. So I'm going to wait til next weekend when I visit Sally at Salty Yarns. I don't want to mess it up it is turning out to be so beautiful. If I keep at this pace I will have the rest done by the weekend. I have wishful thinking.
