No photos to show today, but I wanted to post an update.

I finished the "for me shawl" just after my last post and then began a shades of brown shawl for the prayer shawl ministry which will be finished in a day or so.  Will take pictures (will try to remember!) before turning the brown shawl over to the ministry at next week's knitting gathering.  By that time, I will have begun another shawl, a colorway to be determined soon.

Have a great weekend.

Today, I nearly finished a shawl for myself that I began making a year ago.  Actually, I'm doing a crocheted border around the whole thing.  So, it will be done quite soon.

Then, back to the prayer shawl I began last week for the Prayer Shawl Ministry I belong to.  The colors are  medium brown along with several shades of various tan/cream/brown yarns.  I'm doing several rows in different patterns to make it interesting texture-wise. 

Also, making a navy knitted scarf for charity.

The "Girl Friends Valentine" was made by Susan Branch.  She shared it with FaceBook members today.  I love her work!

Feb. 1st, 2013

During the month of January, I made one crocheted shawl using a combination of yarns (both acrylic).  The sport weight yarn was a dark brown and the second shade which was a light tan was a fingering weight.  Of course, the dark yarn was the predominant color.  Will post a photo of it once I take one.

The last half of January, I knitted a blue toned yarn (several shades) using two contrasting strands.... all in garter stitch.  This one is quite cozy and warm feeling.  I made it wider than usual as I had a man's lap robe in mind.   No photo taken yet, but will add once I take one. 

Usually I forget to take photos before turning the shawls in, but I need to make it a habit so I can refer to the shawls later, if needed.
