8/14/2011 - Cast on last night and have completed the set-up and four repeats of the pattern. It’s an easy pattern to remember. The yarn is working well also - soft but not slippery. I’m making this for our prayer shawl ministry. After years of knitting quick shawls with Homespun or Simply Soft, I decided I wanted to knit a lace shawl for the ministry. Sometimes I want mindless knitting but this time I feel like intentionally knitting a shawl.
