(I was longing to work on my Debbie Bliss Pure Silk tank top instead!)

So tonight, I FORCED myself to sit down and finish the shawl.

Yay!!! I guess I'd better not knit any more of them, because my heart is just not in it. Maybe I'll be more inclined to work on them in about a year. We'll see. Until then, I'm donating ALL my Lion Brand Homespun to the ministry, so they can use it to make shawls without me.

Hi Sandy,
What a beautiful shawl. I just completed on in that same color and it took me several months. I have started using #13 needles cast on 57 and do the k3 p3 stitch. I started our group at our church last May and we have given out to date 48 shawls. I am just thankful that there are several who knit faster than I and keep the supply going. Good luck with your knitting and the Lord will let you know when to start again.
