I’ll admit I don’t have the best track record when it comes to finishing crochet projects. Part of it is I haven’t yet blocked any of my projects, and I have a reluctance to try (for no good reason).
But this one I am really going to finish. This shawl project is for a friend who just started cancer treatment. Her favorite color is yellow, and she’s already cold all the time. So I’m going to send her this sunny shawl to wrap up in.
I had intended for it to be a prayer shawl (where you say prayers or think of positive intentions for the recipient as you make it), but I find I have to think about the act of crocheting too much to think of anything else. Maybe once I get the pattern down better I’ll be able to think positive thoughts for her. In the meantime, I’ve just been singing church songs in back of my mind as I crochet.
I’ll be taking a few days off for a long weekend, and I hope to get a lot done on the shawl. I’ll report back next week!
