A completed project -
A few weeks ago, I wrote about returning from a mini-retreat and the fact that I had been overcome with the need to KNIT - a typical thing that happens to me every winter.
After all - who wants a big, warm knitting project draped over your lap when it is 80 degrees outside!
But when it is cold and the winds are whipping around . . .that's a different story.
Well . . .last night I finished the
knitting project . . .A prayer shawl made out of a thick, soft yarn - purple and black because . . .well just because purple makes me giggle with happiness!
After finishing it up, it looked a little too plain - so I added a little extra excitement with the fun colored funky yarn. I sewed it in.
I didn't know if I liked the effect when I started and then I reminded myself - when I am painting and I don't like what it looks like, I just keep painting. When I don't like something - it usually means it's not finished yet.
So - I took my own advice and kept adding on until it looked "finished".
And here it is . . .
