Best Thing Since....

..maybe sliced bread.

I was working on my Ginkgo Shawl and was having a hard time following the chart---my problem, not the designer's problem. I tried enlarging the chart and my eye still wandered and I couldn't keep track of where I was. And then I remembered that we carry the highlighting tape at work, and I picked up a roll.

Immediate relief! I highlighted each row as I worked it, peeled off the tape and used it on the next row. What had been a long, hard slog became a quick knit.

I can't wait to make my next charted shawl so I can use this again.
