Here is another post about my latest knitting creations. Now that "prayer shawl making season" has ended, I want to show you the last shawl I made for our group. It's a somewhat more ambitious pattern than I've done before, so it was a bit on the frustrating side. In fact, one night I got so frustrated I decided to just finish it where I was at. I then decided I really shouldn't do that, but the more I looked at it, and the more I thought about it, the more I realized I should. After all, children need prayer too. And the shawl was perfect (in my mind anyway) for a little girl - after all, it is shades of pink and purple, and has diamonds, sort of. So, here it is, being modeled by one who is close in size to whom I imagine it might some day go to:
He was a little sad he couldn't keep it for himself. Sweet Zeke.
Another project I've started up involves more things Zeke is sad he can't keep for himself, even though I insist on using him as my model for photos, are super cute headbands. It started with this one that I made to try out the pattern, and LOVE, so it's all mine:
After I saw easy and relatively quick the pattern is I decided to make these as teacher gifts for Zeke's teacher, classroom aide, and speech therapist. (I'll also be making some for his extra curricular speech therapist, but shhh, it's a secret.) Here are the ones I've made (and given) so far:
There was a day I had Zeke and Deacon wearing these for me so I could take pictures. They had a good time (which you'll see, if you want, whenever I get the pictures up on flickr) and thought the headbands were super cool, and wore them around for a bit. As the silliness went on, I turned to Finn and saw him making this face:
Yeeeeahh. He's just not sure about those big brothers of his sometimes. And honesly, I don't blame him one bit for his concern.
