I also started the prayer shawl for my best friends mother. Her favorite colour is light blue and that was one colour I did not have in my yarn stash. So off to the store I went. I never realized how hard it would be to find a light blue yarn in a bulky weight here. So I bought a lighter weight. Sure hope it turns out.
Here is a picture of the shawl so far.
It looks slightly purple, but believe me it is a light blue.
I also finished off the last of the family reunion silent auction items. I have one more skein of this yarn in blue, and after that one is done, I doubt I will knit with it ever again. Just too temperamental. I do like how it turned out though.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
