Mystery Shawlette well darn it

Wendy, of Wendy Knits, published the next section of her Summer Mystery Shawlette on Thursday, but Thursdays are not the best day for me to pick up a new knitting chart or my needles, so I didn't touch it until late Friday.

She promised a larger clue to hold me through the holiday weekend here....but like many knitters I pulled the "just one more row" before mowing the lawn,


and "one more row" before mopping the floors, and "one more row" before hitting the farm market for fresh food.And before I knew it I had only "one more row" before the end of the clue!

Now I have to wait until next Thursday to get the final one and block this baby to shape and size! Well darn it! What shall I work on until then?

Bev, in answer to how do I find these patterns, well I read Wendy's blog and have really liked some of her other patterns. The last two shawlettes that I knit somehow ended up in TDQ's hands and have not been seen apart from in passing as she heads out the door for school since!

Jeri, do you have any good ideas on how to sign and date a baby blanket?

The shawl is looking good, can't wait to see it finished and blocked

For signing and dating a baby blanket, I'd probably either use embroidery in a darker but similar shade of yarn, or knit it into the border somehow ( eg if garter stitch border, work letters in stockinette).. Embroidery is easier after the fact!
