Trinity Stitch Prayer Shawl

I recently completed a prayer shawl for a friend, much of which I did seated in a blue rocking chair, staring at the Wind River Mountains, enjoying a giant fluffy dog at my feet. I selected the yarn because of the variegated purples — one of my favorite shades, and because it is exceptionally soft.

The trinity stitch was the perfect fit too; three knit, three purl, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In prayer for the recipient while knitting, I was reminded of the blessings of good health. It is one of life’s mysteries that we are able to completely overlook all that is wonderful and gracious until it suddenly slips away. Today, may I be more mindful of the plentitude of goodness in my life and remember to be even more thankful.

Psalm 143 says this so much better than I ever could.

  8. Beautiful sunrise/set colors and lovely sentiments. You can tell the yarn is soft by the look of it.

    Odd, I left a comment before, but it disappeared into the ethers.
