Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

hot off the needles

Just finished another prayer shawl
Very simple, uncomplicated rows of straight knitting, 
with a self striping yarn.

As we head into cooler days, 
I think I will try this pattern again for my next shawl.
Maybe in a squash or pumpkin color.

How easy it is to knit love and hope and spirit
into such a simple garment.

Prayer is not asking for what you think you want,
but asking to be changed in ways you can't imagine.
-Kathleen Norris

  1. Love this, Karen, especially the quote.
    The shawl is beautiful and would be lovely in oranges.
