I have managed to learn a few things during this one year of staying home. One of these learned things is knitting. I am a knitter. Knit knit knitter.
Now, thanks to the help of my grandmotherly neighbor who taught me to knit, I am working on two projects. One, a sad, sad looking dish towel, and the other, thanks to my friend Ruth, a prayer shawl. This one is happy looking.
A prayer shawl is a ministry outreach, one that Ruth and her crowd are a part of, for our elderly in the nursing homes. It’s purpose is to keep shoulders and hearts warm.
I am planning to make a few for my family for Christmas. I like to think anyone of all ages can appreciate a shawl during these South Dakota winters. Or Oregon winters, for my sister…
When I’m not knitting, I am making jello. We love jello in this home.
This is straight after the milk mixture was poured in, so once it’s set, it will be artistically appetizing.
I will tweet the finished look tonight.
Hope you have a great weekend. It is supposed to be in the 60’s today. 60’s! November!
