I also have a prayer shawl on the needles that has been on said needles for way too long. I have finally cut the fringe and started the third skein so the end is in sight. It also helps that I have pulled this out and been knitting on it more than just at the monthly evening prayer shawl knitting with friends. Once a month was just not going to finish this shawl. The yarn is LB Homespun in "candy apple".
This morning while reading email, I was attracted to two little patterns and just happen to have some stash to try them out. So, here are two balls of yarn and the items they may soon become.
The multi-colored yarn on the left is Lana Grossa Cotofilo and will be used for the Presto! Baby Hat. http://20hatsproject.blogspot.com/2008/02/presto-baby-hat.html
