Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

First Prayer Shawl

prayer shawl 1
Last Monday I started this from random yarns (Rowan Cashsoft, Cascade 220, Crystal Palace Whisper, Southwest Trading Co. Karaoke, Crystal Palace Merino Stripes, Rowan Big Wool, Rowan Kidsilk Haze). I used a size 13 circular needle. It's not perfect, but I'm pleased. I think I'd prefer to knit a triangular shawl for my own use; I like the way they drape across my back and arms better.

    It's beautiful, love the colors. I hope to make my first prayer shawl soon. My church even has a knitting ministry, now ain't that a shame that I haven't gotten involved with it.
