Traveling Woman Shawl

My latest shawl is the Traveling Woman Shawl (I found it on Ravelry.)

I'm using handspun cashmere that I bought 4 years ago and have waited to use with the right pattern. This is it. I love the feel of the fiber not only on the needles but also as a finished product.

The pattern is easy to read. Even though the pattern does not suggest to use stitch markers to mark the pattern repeat, time and again, I have found for me that stitch markers help me keep the pattern straight. Also, I used a life line because on the 5th row of the pattern I had problems. After reading the Traveling Woman KAL on Ravelry, I was reminded that a life line would help. So I put on in and ripped back several rows and started over. Before I knew it, I was flying along with the pattern.

I'm now half way through the second pattern repeat. My hope is to have the shawl finished by the weekend.
