FO - Prayer for Comfort Shawl
Hi all!

Ok...so this is another crochet project. Hope you'll forgive me for posting it here.

I've ventured into this other fiber hobby as a way to crank out prayer shawls faster. My church just started a new ministry, and I've heard that crocheting is quicker (although it does use more yarn). So, I had a bit of help from a couple of gals on Ravelry and YouTube'd the rest.

Here's the pattern booklet that I bought at Joann's:




I had fallen in love with this project (the picture from the book...Amazon's website):




And here's my finished project...













I started on 4/27 and finished today (5/7).

I used a little under four skeins of Bernat Satin (the colorway is Sable).

The yarn is soft and very warm. It was a little bit thready...which was not super easy for a novice crocheter like myself, but I didn't find myself doing battle, if you know what I mean.

All in all, a pretty easy project except for the edging, which I attribute to my lack of practice and not the pattern.

Thanks for looking and bearing with my non-knitting project on this board.

Surprisingly, the project did go quickly! I really wanted to kick it out fast.

Thanks for the compliments on my hair. For years, I fought the curl. Don't know why. Now I wash and go. No extra product. Just me and the South's humidity.

That is really pretty Nathalie! I love the collar look - makes it more unique!

You did a great job - I have SUCH an issue with crochet unless it is a very small (and very basic) project. I HATE HATE HATE counting, especially when there are alot of stitches....and as such, I tend to either add or lose sts in the rows. I tried to make a baby blanket a few years ago with a speed hook and 3 strands of yarn held together. The project went really fast, BUT the blanket ended up shaped like an hourglass! Oh well, my girl cat likes it..........

Thanks, Jan! It's natural...wash and go. I quit fighting the curl years ago...figured if I was gonna live in the South all of my life, might as well embrace them.
