I have been busy crocheting along on the Prayer Shawl, and it has been such a great experience so far. Personally, it has felt so good to have those quiet moments together with my project, thinking about the good things and the hope for our future. A good cup of tea and some good music makes it even better. I smile every time I sit down to crochet, because I am reminded of joy, and love, and family. I can't wait to wrap my daughter and myself up in it when it is all finished in a big fibery hug.
Technically, I am really enjoying working with this pattern and yarn. The pattern is very easy to memorize, which makes it fun to do any time of the day. I can pick it up and crochet for a while, then get up and take care of the kiddos or cook dinner without losing my place. The yarn is a joy to work with. It feels so soft and cool in my hands. It is a nice change from the warmer fibers that I have worked with all winter.
This project is coming right along. I can't wait to show you when it is all finished!
