My sweetie pie brother-in-law has knitted me a beautiful prayer shawl. I think one of the nicest things a knitter can do is make something for another knitter. Seems most of us make things to give away first and foremost and only occasionally keep them for ourselves.
He picked up knitting just a little over a year ago and has made some wonderful prayer shawls and scarves. He's now taking classes at his local yarn shop and I'm planning to take a few with him for the learning, the getting out of the house and, mostly, the camaraderie and FUN!
This shawl is a gorgeous green variegated bouclé that is light as a feather but incredibly warm and cozy. I love it and will wear it often. Thanks, BIL!
