Prayer Shawl

I love a bargain!  We have a store in our area called Big Lots, and they carry clearance items that have not sold in other stores, as well as large quantity items.  They have yarn there on which I can get a great deal.  I recently purchased three skeins of yarn in coordinating colors that were a total of one pound for about seven dollars. I started this prayer shawl on Saturday night, and finished this evening. It worked up pretty quick with thick yarn and a large hook.  It is supposed to be for someone who needs to feel surrounded with prayers, as we pray for comfort, strength and healing for a person while we create the shawls.  My daughter asked me if she could have it.  We'll see... :)

Very nice! I alway love how quickly things go when using the granny square type patterns. I'm sure someone is going to feel wonderful wrapping your prayer shawl around themselves. :)
