FO: First Prayer Shawl


I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

Leftover sock yarns in 3 colorways.
Angel Hair Yarns ( Tennessee ) Pattern
Butterfly Shawl
Knitted on sqaure circulars....gotta love that
I cast on 180 stitches instead of 360 stitches.
The fun is: you knit the Longest part first.
Crocheted a border and worked the ends in simultaneously.

The best part is: No pain. My prayer shawl was prayers of thanksgiving!

Next up: another shawlette. of course. Bigger yarn. More leftovers.

I have to tell you : The Cake Pie was a bust.
I brought into work all pretty. Then I put it out
and sliced it.....
not cooked enough to eat in the middle!
I think I'll stick to chips and dip.
It is all good. Pretty much anything you bring to work
gets eaten.
(except raw cake....hahahahaha)

Beautiful shawl, Kath!

The shawl is beautiful!! I love the colors. I'm glad to hear you are starting another!

Raw cake is okay. You just have to use a spoon instead of a fork. You could have called it a pudding cake!

Ling said...

oh no - sorry about the cake pie! I love your shawl and what a great idea to use up leftover yarn.

You crack me up. I could have said it was pudding cake, but I was afraid the whole weekend shift would get diarrhea. Then I would be the talk of the unit for YEARS to come.

Love the patriotic colors. Is this one for you? I hope so. I'm glad you can now knit without pain. That is a blessing and I hope it continues. Did the square needles make a difference?
