Is it a sin to frog a prayer shawl?
Before I wove in a few ends, I was being pretty hard on myself about this prayer shawl. I knit it for my Aunt Kathleen. It is pretty small, but will cover shoulders nicely. I started to ponder frogging it.
Something seemed wrong about frogging a prayer shawl. But, I wondered, where do the prayers go if I frog it? I asked Fireman, who responded philosophically : 'dont know.' Then I asked Zach and he said, philosophically: "to the frogs."
How can anyone not like a prayer shawl knitted for them while you prayed for them, even if it came out small?
I was afraid I'd run out of yarn so at one point I added some scrap yarns. I was pretty safe with my color choices: Greens are safe with purple and another deeper purple looked alright too.
I asked St. Francis to model the shawl for the blog today.
Have you frogged a prayer shawl? I'm still unclear about the rules........:)
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
