And thank heaven for the wonderful search function in Windows 7 which quickly brought up my files on the acrylic baby blanket I woven several years ago for our grandson.

And why should this matter?

Our church has started a prayer shawl group.  I went to the first meeting, but when the meetings were set on a day I could not come, I fully expected I would knit on a prayer shawl at home.  The more I thought about it, the less I liked it.  I have too many other things right now that I would rather knit and not enough loose time (i.e., car travelling, doctor waiting, etc.) to do it all.  But…………..

I could weave one!

The baby blanket I had made provided the perfect model.  Machine washable, the right grist.   Perfect.  So I worked out the numbers.



I was going to wait a bit before ordering the yarn.  And then I thought, no, do it now.  So I ordered to cones, one a light dusty blue, one a medium blue.  I will weave large checks of these two colors.

But…………..the current warp still has to come off the loom.  I am getting close to actually doing it!
