I forgot to get some pics of the pinwheel today so it will have to wait until tomorrow. Here is the prayer/thought shawl I made for Lois. Nothing fancy. Very plain and simple. But VERY comfy and warm. The kids and I went over to her house to swim and I gave it to her then. I think she really liked it. She says she can’t wait for cooler weather so that she can actually use it. I hope she can get tons of usage out of it.Lois' thought shawl

Lois' thought shawl
I know I said I was getting really tired of working on this shawl. I think it was just a bad day. I honestly think my hands craved the mindlessness of it all. It felt good to just knit without worry of mistakes. I thought alot about my mom. I thought alot about Lois and her mom. I just thought alot. Ya know?
