She was happy to see me and said "What's going on here?" when I pulled the wrapped shawl from my bag. She loves the shawl and although it is a bit long it works well because she can wrap it around her many times to keep her warm.
I am involved in the prayer shawl ministry at my church and my mom was inspired by me to start a ministry at her church. My mom gave a prayer shawl to her minister on Sunday, December 20th and was so choked up she couldn't speak. I have received many blessings since I have been involved in prayer shawl ministry and I will continue to do it for years to come. It is a blessing to both the giver or maker of the shawl as well as the receipient.

I did also knit a scarf for a gift exchange/Christmas party that I am going to this week. I knit the scarf horizontally and it went really fast. It is two stripes of purple, a white stripe, followed by the two purples again. My camera is acting up right now, but I will post a picture as soon as I can.
What's on your needles?

A baby sweater (3/4 of the way complete) I frogged the right front of this sweater last night - it was crooked and I couldn't figure out how to make it straight so I decided to rip it all out. I haven't decided if I will cast on again tonight or give it a rest for a few days....
A prayer shawl - I am trying a new pattern for a lace shawl. This will be a Christmas present for someone in my family.
A scarf for my DD for Christmas - I haven't started this yet - but plan to make it with many different yarns all in her favorite color.
A scarf for battered women shelter - I got a kit from Concepts in Yarn on Wednesday night. I will start that sometime this week.
I had a bad cold all weekend so I didn't get too much knitting done. I did complete two prayer shawls last week. One for my step-mother and one for my best friend. I will post pictures of them soon. I hope to get the shawl out to my step-mother sometime this week before Thanksgiving and the mail rush begins!
