Another "To the Point" prayer shawl is completed and heading to the prayer shawl ministry at my parish. I had stopped making these for a while as we were not mailing out shawls because of covid. Now that things are settling down, the shawls are being sent again. I am hoping to use up the rest of the worsted weight yarn I have by making these. Once that is used up, I will only purchase worsted weight weight for projects calling for it. Like these prayer shawls and like this:
Yup, another Wee Sherlock is going to be made soon. We have a dear friend (who calls me grandma) that is expecting her first baby. Her husband is my BFF's son. We are so happy for them. I just had to get some lovely soft washable yarn for the wee one that is expected to arrive in January. There will also be a hat, baby mitts and booties made to go with this. They live in Texas where there is actually cold weather! We will know the gender the end of this month and the buttons and embellishments will be gender specific. The yarn is from Hobby Lobby and is their Soft and Sleek low pill yarn. Perfect for baby garments.
I took them off the magic loop and put them on DPN's. I am sorry, I do not find magic loop quick at all. It seems I spend more time pushing the project up and down the needles then I do knitting. The orange marker is where I was last time I worked on these. The sock on the right has a few more rows on it than the one on the left. But no worries. Each of them has a row counter attached to it so they will be even in the end. This is my TV watching project.
I purchased two more chain row counters this past week and they arrived on Friday. You might remember I had a lemon row counter a while back. Well, someone fell in love with it and I gave it to them. Luckily KnittyGnat (on etsy) had another one in her stock so I grabbed it along with the sea turtle. That gives me 4 counters and three are already in use.
