When I picked up a copy of The Prayer Shawl Ministry: Reaching Those in Need (Leisure Arts #4225) I knew this would be one of the first items I made. I am experimenting with different types of shawls, but something about the triangle shaped shawls keeps drawing me back.
I really liked the finished edging on this shawl. It gave the shawl a nice look when it was done.
Still am working on improving my pictures. When you click on the picture it gives you a better look at the structure of the shawl, but still limits the color. I'm having a hard time finding a place I can hang the shawl and still get good light. I love the look of the Homespun yarn though and I wanted to demonstrate how pretty it looks close up so I took some quick shots to show the pattern.
I started on the shawl shown on the cover of this book. I have a crochet/knitting group meeting this week so I may have another prayer shawl finished before next week's prayer shawl meeting. These work up much faster than I would have anticipated.
I am going to have to keep my eyes out for Homespun yarn sales. While I can keep working through my supply of worsted, many of these call for bulkier weight yarns.
