I may be the last person in the country to jump on the Outlander bandwagon. I was cautioned that it starts out a bit slow, but that it was worth it. I completely agree, and I think I’m hooked. I’m about halfway and it is due back to the library soon, so I think I’m going to log some serious tea-drinking and book-reading time this week.

That is, when I’m not knitting this prayer shawl. I recently joined the Prayer Shawl Ministry at my church, as it seemed right up my alley. However, I didn’t really know where to start. I hadn’t actually ever knit a shawl. It turns out that people actually knit small blankets, but oh well. This is going to be a shawl. Of course, I googled it and found this website with a simple pattern. I may try something a bit more ambitious next time, but this is nice, mindless knitting–suitable for TV watching. I love the color and hope that it brings someone comfort in there time of need someday.

Linking up with Ginny.
