Boy, has it been a long time since I updated this blog. When my shoulder went out, I couldn’t do any crocheting or knitting. Had shoulder surgery in March of this year and doctor gave me a full release last week. I tried off and on to work with yarn, but I couldn’t manage more than a few minutes at a time.
I began working on a knitted prayer shawl about the time my shoulder pain became severe, so it has been a long time in the making. So long, in fact, that I lost the pattern! I have searched everywhere and cannot find it. I think it must have been a free pattern on some yarn. Luckily the pattern was easy to pick up and continue when I was able to work again. Sorry I can’t share the actual pattern with you.
The yarn I used was “with Love” by Red Heart. It’s a medium ‘4’ yarn and the color is Iris. I just love the color which doesn’t really show up as good in the pictures. Each end of the shawl has soft points, much like you see on a “ripple” afghan. That took some doing as it wanted to curl so I started it with three rows of knit to keep it from rolling…but then when it came time to end it and bind off, I had to do some serious reworks. But I think it turned out okay.
I’ll be going back to crocheting some triangle shawls for my next few projects. Need to be more productive!
But I’m happy to be back and hope you’ll stop in and check out my future projects.
Happy crocheting or knitting!
