Saturday's Song: Slow Stitching. Stash Report.

Saturday's Song:  Clean
My sweet reader, 
God loves you.  Nothing you have done, said or thought can separate you from Him.  He washes you clean and frees you from your past!  
I should know.
He has cleansed me time and again.
Will you believe long enough to let Him and walk in freedom?

Slow Stitching
This weekend I'll be starting two new projects, a Christmas gift and Prayer Shawl #11.  
This will be my sister's Christmas Gift

 in this yarn....

She tells me she wears the gloves and shawls/scarves I make her to the frequent evening events that she and her husband attend.  The yarn has a subtle sparkle to it that will make it perfect for these occasions. 
The pattern is in this book
and is called the Cluster V-Stitch Wrap designed by Sue Childress. She doesn't read my blog, so I'm not ruining the surprise.......

I'm also starting Prayer Shawl #11, but this one will be more of a Prayer Afghan for a child using this yarn.  
Do you recognize the combination?  It's the yarn I used for Patrick's Strength .  I'm adding white yarn to soften the combination of red, black and blue as you can see in Patrick's finished afghan.    

Stash Report
I added 3 yards to my fabric stash and will be adding another three yards next week.  It's been difficult to find my background fabric for a project. 
Being that I finished Prayer Shawl #10 and a small dishcloth, I used a bit of yarn and have resisted buying more!

  1. The shawl is very elegant...classic, clean lines. What a great gift.

  2. Oh such pretty shawls! Lucky sister! I have never seen yo-yos sewn into grandmother flower garden blocks. What a grand idea

  3. The shawl looks beautiful. She'll love it. My plan was to have things knitted over the Summer, but alas, I am slow since I'm rather new to the knitting world. Crochet goes much faster for me. I may end up just making hats for my kids. Last year it was sewing projects, and not sure if they really appreciate, but it gives me something in my retirement years to keep my mind busy. Thanks for sharing your scripture blessings this week. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing this wonderful song. Such a beautiful shawl you are going to crochet. :-)

  5. That gray yarn will make a lovely shaw and gray is such a flexible color. It goes with so much. Congrats on the knitted finishes. Happy knitting/stitching this week.

  6. The shawl will be gorgeous. I am fascinated by your year of stitches piece, too.

  7. Estou te seguindo amei a canção e o xale é lindo..... estou feliz em estar com voce, obrigada.
