Thanks to our friends on New Stitch a Day, this old dog learned a new trick and applied it to a prayer shawl that I am knitting for a friend going through a rough patch. He requested something acrylic so it could be easily washed (chemo issues). The texture of the fabric is almost blanket-like and very soft. It's a four-row pattern that I am able to keep straight underneath my 50 Shades of Gray, except for the night I had a second martini. Had to rip a few rows out the next morning. Ooooops. Hope to have it finished by the weekend and will post a pic of the finished piece.
