Like A Prayer Shawl: Work In Progress

Like A Prayer Shawl: Work In Progress

About Like A Prayer Shawl

Like A Prayer by Madonna

I think I like “Like A Prayer Shawl” versus ” Like A Prayer Prayer Shawl.” What do you think? This ain’t a religious thingy. 😀

So, this is another ODDBALLS project, whose destination – charity donation or Neighbors By Design item – remains unknown at this time. And whose current destination is the WIP  (Work In Progress) shelf because I have not found the right yarn to finish this shawl.

About The Yarn

The yarns pictured were acquired from an ESSS raffle. I was surprised to receive natural fibers.

FibraNatura Naturalin

Care: Wash by hand in cool water. Do not press or iron. Do not bleach.
Additionally, I would include lay flat to dry or even hanging.
Color: TBrown
Fiber Content: 53% Cotton, 47% Linen
Weight: Aran

Technically speaking, this was kinda stiff, and slippery on my metal needles. I had to adjust my tension to work with it – unfortunately for me, tighter. 😦

Green Yarns

Care: Treat as FibraNatura Naturalin
Color: Well, that would be . . . wait for it . . . Green 😀
Fiber Content: Natural Fiber, per burn test
Weight: Unknown

Again, technically speaking, the greens were a bit rough, at first. I thought it was like a twine, but the strands broke very easily. My first thought is WOOL! Baa! 😀 🙂 Because it was lighter in weight – I’d guess Sport to DK – than the FibraNatura Naturalin, I double-stranded the greens. As I have been handling the yarn I noticed them softening with wear.
