i am really liking this shawl!!  I am in the early phase of infatuation when you need to knit all you can!  It fades quickly as we all know.  Strike while the knitting needle is hot, as they say.

I am done with the first two charts (130 rows complete): 26 x 13 inches:

The finished shawl is supposed to be about 50×100 inches!! Using my bogus math skills, that means I am ~13.5% done.   That’s not too bad, though I will never keep up the same pace. 

Tomorrow is Monday :(.


  1. I’m knitting it, too, and am up to row 219. Still excited about it. This is a brilliant pattern.

  2. It looks great, she says with a twinge of knitting envy.

  3. Susan- Ahh, the trick of shawl knitting- the darn thing just gets bigger and bigger.

    You have quite a bit done- such an amazing pattern.

  4. Definitely one on my list. Too much ‘other people knitting’ to do first though. Dang those ‘other people’!

  5. Susan, I am sorry that the Prayer Shawl didn’t work for your purpose but I know you will come up with something else. The Mystic Water shawl is beautiful, can’t wait to watch it’s progress.
