I don't belong to a formal Prayer Shawl...
Created By: Sunny Fullas

I don't belong to a formal Prayer Shawl Ministry group, but I make them for others. I began making a Prayer Shawl for my Mother-in-law in a Homespun color that I liked but did not have enough of to finish. When I looked for more I discovered that the color was discontinued. I searched online as well as in yarn stores, department stores, dollar stores, any place that might carry yarn, particularly discontinued colors. My Mother-in-law died unexpectedly before I finished the shawl. I hope that the prayers I said for her made her passage easier.

I had also planned to make a Prayer Throw for my Father-in-law. I checked the dimensions of the throw in the Prayer Shawl pattern book and decided to make the unfinished shawl into a throw, and I now included prayers for him as he goes through the process of grieving. I purchased another Homespun yarn in a matching color and simply added rows around the shawl. I like to think of it as a big hug my Father-in-law gives my Mother-in-law whenever he uses it.

I am also making a patch work afghan for my daughter using different yarns, stitches, and textures for each block. I used some of the leftover yarn to make a block of her afghan that looks like a miniature of the Prayer Throw.
