Thanks to Johnny on New Stitch a Day, this old dog learned a new trick. I followed his tutorial on the Whelk Stitch and knitted a prayer shawl of which I am quite proud. It has a nice drape and is very cuddly. Now...time for a celebratory martini...or two.

I love that stitch! It looks soft and warm and drapes ever so nicely. I definitely need to look up the Whelk stitch. Beautiful job!

Cheers! It is beautiful. I told Johnny about how nice it looks, and he wants to see it too!! I don't think he comes on here much - you should send him the pictures at NSAD. He'd love to see them! Happy Knitting! -Matt
