FINALLY- A finished project to show! I made this, my first prayer shawl for my older sister. I really enjoyed it. After getting nearly half way through I noticed a mistake I had made near the beginning. I had switched to ribbing for one section of several rows. My friend told me to try to work it into the shawl a few more times, and I did. I was a little wary of how it would turn out, but I LOVE it. You can see one of the mistakes?/irregularities? in this picture if you look closely. Here is some info on the prayer shawl ministry if you are curious.
And, this is some really great 100% merino sock yarn (hand painted, no less)
That my totally awesome friend Trish got for me when she went to Wales last weekend for a wool festival. How great is that? This picture does not in any way at all do justice to how beautiful it is. I really wish I would have taken a pic of it in the hank before I wound it into the center-pull ball. It looked lovely in the hank!
