Red prayer shawl

This is the third pattern that I have developed for prayer shawls for my church. The photo shows the cabled edges and the large center cable.

I’m going to take a break from knitting these for a while.


Long, skinny scarf


I wanted to make a scarf that is drapable and can be tied without too much bulk. This mesh pattern turned out to be perfect with thin yarn and rather large needles. The yarn is sort of variegated, with several shades of blue.

New beret


This beret started as an adaptation of another pattern (because I didn’t have the right yarn for it), but I adapted it so much that it’s quite different. The yarn is Lion Brand’s “Amazing” (color, Regatta). The photos show the top and bottom of the beret.
It’s for sale at $25.

My fifth prayer shawl

This is my fifth prayer shawl for my church’s new ministry.
Prayer shawls are rather large projects but good for cold winter evenings. I don’t know whether I’ll want to knit them when the weather gets warmer.
But, who knows? I knit year round.IMG_3426IMG_3427
