Joining Carole and friends this week for Three on Thursday...
Thing 1 - PRE-CLEANING
...is going well. In addition to my normal Wednesday off, I also have Thursday (today) off this week and the weekend is ahead... so I'm not killing myself in this endeavour.
Thing 2 - OOPS 1
I finished TTL Mystery Shawl Clue 2 yesterday...
...or so I thought. This is an up-to-the-minute photo showing progress on the THIRD REPEAT! Gah! I'm glad I took a minute to read the intro again and count my stitches.
THING 3 - OOPS 2
One of my needles was pointing backward as I came in from taking the photo above.
I kind of love it. If it wasn't so big (5 US), I'd make more. A mosquito could easily fit through that hole.
I hope you're having a good Thursday!
Love the shawl, and I think the screen hole might call for some visible mending. If it looks good, then you could make more holes!

I’m going to hire someone,too. I think Bonny is onto something. You need another project, right?

Yes to visible screen mending - lol. Perhaps some colorful embroidery?
That shawl is looking so pretty.

The shawl is looking great! I like the idea of mending the screen with something colorful.

Sign me up in the "visible mending" camp! (Seems like the perfect solution.)

I am with the Visible Mending Crowd! And, yes... perfect!
I just finished clue 2 (and yes, I counted my stitches!) Onward to clue 3... oy!

Late to the party, but still casting my vote for the visible mending! and woot! for the Mystery Shawl - I managed to finish clue #3 on Wednesday and look forward to tackling #4 today and tomorrow (with tennis ... hopefully I can watch/knit at the same time now that Roger isn't playing...)

Shawl progress is pretty. Hole in the screen, not so pretty. You could Alabama Chanin it!

My solution for mosquitoes in the house: leave the cobwebs where they occur until summer is over. Your mystery shawl is lovely!
