not your grandmother's shawl

I wore a shawl that my friend D. knit for me tonight.

I looked pretty spiffy.

I got a whole bunch of compliments on it.

It covered up the bulges that should be flat and the flat bits that should be bulges.

And I felt like I was being hugged all night.

I love it when people knit, weave or sew for me.

I am looking for mine now. Just the right time of year for one.

Okay, I've never owned one, but your writing makes me WANT to own one. I love the "being hugged all night" analogy...that rocks!

There is a knitting group in my church. They make beautiful prayer shawls. They gave me one at the beginning of all my drama last year. It is lovely! I mean everytime I wrap it around me it is like a hug from God. Shawls and the people who make them are Angels!

I'm so bummed! I thought you'd have a picture of your beautiful shawl!

Have I mentioned to you that I want to learn how to knit but I can't seem to get past the purl? So sad.
