Two new prayer shawls ready for delivery:
Aunt Lydias number 10 crochet bamboo to be exact.
The Mystery of the Trinity (Ravelry Link) from The Prayer Shawl Companion.
It took awhile for me to get along with this pattern. In the beginning I ripped it out several times, mostly because it is very difficult to "read the knitting" as you are working it. Finally, I charted out the stitch pattern and it was smooth sailing from there. In fact, I will cast on for another of the same pattern tonight. The yarn is a Bernat worsted acrylic.
Hoping to get this one woven off and sent out this weekend. Maybe it will be a comfort during these remaining weeks of pregnancy and perhaps it can even serve as a nursing shawl.
More about this bamboo crochet thread: I dyed some of this at our guild dye day (actually, it's the bamboo I'm painting in the pictures). This stuff dyes beautifully with fiber reactive dyes. I'm looking forward to getting that warp on the loom.
Speaking of looms: I got a call earlier in the week and my new loom will be shipped at the end of next week. As Carly Simon sang: .Anticipation.....
