Here are the first pics of the prayer shawl: This is how it looks most days sitting by my desk:
Here's what it looks like all spread out:
It's either 1/2 done or 2/5 done, I haven't decided yet. This yarn is Lion Brand Homespun, a yarn I was obsessed with for a while. I knitted this really, really strange scarf out of it, and had 5 skeins left over. It's soft, and not heavy (even though it's a bulky yarn) and I'm fascinated with this color. It's called 'Colonial' and I can't decide if it looks more like the deep ocean or the deep forest. Anyway, it's working up really nice, and I hope she'll like it.
