Prayer Shawl





This project right here is what lured me back into knitting. My desire to knit a prayer shawl for my sister-in-law, whose husband (My Old Man’s older brother) died 5 years ago this coming December 18th, which is also my sister-in-law’s birthday. I think anniversaries are important and can be very difficult; I wanted her to feel held in love and prayer in the midst of grief. What makes a prayer shawl different from a regular shawl is that the knitter intentionally prays for the intentended recipient while knitting (see http://www.shawlministry.com).

The specs: started in September, finished on Thanksgiving day. Knit in Knit Picks Suri Dream, blueberry, 4 balls.
