It’s been sitting in my yarn stash for a couple months. Finally decided to pull it out and make something. I chose one of my favorite patterns in the Leisure Arts Prayer Shawl Ministry book. Though the designs are all made with Lion Brand Homespun yarn, I’ve modified the instructions to use Worsted Weight Yarn.
Not sure what kind of border to add yet, but I like the way the colors are blending in this pattern. Will post the final results when I finish.
Yesterday I gave the pretty berry colored prayer shawl to my Weight Watchers Leader. She recently lost one of her twin granddaughters who was born premature. What a good feeling to cover someone in a shawl filled with prayers.
Do you give your shawls personally or donate them to your ministry stash? I do both. Also if you have any favorite patterns to share, please let me know by leaving a comment.
NOTE: In my soon to be released fiction book, the heroine, Beth Middleton, crochets prayer shawls, too.
