These are just fabulous in the wintertime, or when eating breakfast outside on crisp cold spring mornings, or on chilly rainy summer evenings, or to stretch the outside season longer into the fall... It's a wonder they've lasted this long.
You can just see the blue thread on the right side in the picture (and in between the first row of stitches) - that's the waste yarn from my provisional cast on. It will later be removed to expose the live stitches so the cabled band that runs along the side of the shawl can be continued along the edge.
The stitch markers are a great help. The blue ones mark the change between each of the three charts, the white ones various points within each chart. I just wish the recipe was more specific about the placement of the in-chart markers... By my calculations I'll need 19 markers in addition to the chart markers, not 19 in total. I wonder where my mistake is?

I've sewed the lines on the map with actual needle and thread, but the rest is faux stitching.

Made a list of things to to in my home instead. It quickly grew to 21 tasks, large and small. I completed seven of them today and am very pleased with that.
In the mean time, I want to share the most amazing video with you! Take the time to watch it. It's just over 10 minutes long, but definitely worth your while. It put a smile on my face.

i lost something that wasn't mine to lose. my head ache was relieved by a glass filled to the brim with ice cubes (and a little ice coffee). the rediscovery of having very good friends and neighbours - and mail man - helped even more.
