A different type of stitch holder

It is nice to take an occasional break. The most recent for us was business-related but I had many hours to knit on HeartStrings Scotch Thistle Lace Stole and enjoy the sun in Orlando. I realized after I got halfway through the shawl and was ready to start the other half that I did not have a stitch holder or contrasting yarn to hold the stitches so that I could continue knitting. Don's boss is a resourceful guy and provided this line for me and it actually works better than yarn or a pin-type holder and it's probably in your garden shed - weed-eater cord! The yarn is Jojoland Melody Superwash in color #MS08. I love the way the color is changing gradually and actually am looking forward to finishing and blocking.

Carissa, I'm motivated now. I saw 2 nice Scotch Thistle pins while out shopping yesterday and speeded up knitting last night! How much my hands can take remains to be seen. lol.
