Summer Stitch Markers
The calender may say Spring, but school's out and temperatures are in the 90's. It's Summer to everyone here in Needville, Texas. Today I actually got to stay home, so I made these markers. I was able to knit on the shawl too. It is now 16 inches from tip to edge. Pretty good progress I think. I've knit nine pattern repeats, only nine to go and then the border. Of course, the stitch count continues to increase and each repeat takes a little more time to complete. If I can knit an average of 5 repeats a week, I can be finished in a couple of weeks. Hope so. It's hot outside, but air conditioning in public places is often set low. We went to the movies the other night and it was freezing in there. Maybe next time we go I'll have a new shawl to keep me warm.
