To My Prayer Shawl Buddies: The Yarn Journey

The Yarn’s Journey

© 2010 All Rights Reserved
By: Tish Hoar

As the yarn's journey starts,
It becomes a prayer that comes from the shawl maker's heart,
The yarn becomes a journey of silent prayer,
Through it's twists and knots, the prayer is still there,
The quiet clicking or the swish of the yarn,
Tells you the prayer is still going on,
The Shawl maker adds on another skein,
The prayer is anew and doesn't wane,
As time goes by and the shawl maker's mind sometimes wanders,
The yarn goes on and prayerfully ponders,
A prayer is said and the stitching subsides,
The yarn comes to an end and is knotted and tied,
It begins a new journey and given with prayer,
It's Hope, Faith and Love the recipent wears,
But in the silent echoes you can prayerfully hear,
The prayers, the quiet clicking, and the swish of the yarn,
The yarn never ceases and its silent prayers are still going on...

Last Supper Filet - 3rd Progress Report - Jan. 6 2010

I am back working on the filet project. Trying to do at least one to two rows a day. So far so good. The project itself isn't hard but it is very time consuming.

On row 100 - out of 279 rows.

Last Supper Filet - 2nd progress report-March 2009

Pattern from Annie's Attic. Started November 7 2008. Size 10 thread.

Tip: In order to keep where you are: Take a magnetic board, like with cross stitch and mark your row. I use a sticky note two rows below to keep track of where I am. Why two rows below? So I can see the stitches under the row I am stitching. Also helps if you sticky note an arrow in the direction you are stitching.

TIP: If you are starting the pattern keep safety pins where you are, put a tab so you know which side you started on and what row.
