Receiving a Prayer Shawl

My sweetie pie brother-in-law has knitted me a beautiful prayer shawl. I think one of the nicest things a knitter can do is make something for another knitter. Seems most of us make things to give away first and foremost and only occasionally keep them for ourselves.

He picked up knitting just a little over a year ago and has made some wonderful prayer shawls and scarves. He’s now taking classes at his local yarn shop and I’m planning to take a few with him for the learning, the getting out of the house and, mostly, the camaraderie and FUN!

This shawl is a gorgeous green variegated bouclé that is light as a feather but incredibly warm and cozy. I love it and will wear it often. Thanks, BIL!

  1. How beautiful! How lucky for you to have such a thoughtful and talented BIL. You will have a blast at your classes together!

    • He called me last night and we are signed up for a 2-class session in February on how to knit socks. Something I’ve always wanted to learn but just haven’t attempted on my own. We’ll see how it goes …

  2. The colors are awesome. You could knit socks for soldiers, but they probably don’t need warm socks in Iraq. They probably wear camo flip-flops. Who will be the sock model for your blog?

    • I’ll probably have to model them myself. Hopefully, I’ll have something to model. For some reason, knitting socks is a scary prospect for me.
