INTENT

PRAYER SHAWL:  Now I do like to knit, but what is meant by a prayer shawl?  Is the recipient to be a religious devotee whom you see wearing a shawl while praying?   That’s what I used to picture when I saw the words Prayer Shawl.  But I have a better notion now:  PRAYER KNIT ARTICLE.

While I knit,  it is really not random.  It is specific for an individual I am holding in mind as I knit.   The color is specific to that person as is the size, texture and pattern.  (Patterns that are easy and quick are more appealing to me at present time, and I use color and texture to compensate for appeal.)

Since I am working on an article for a particular person, I find myself thinking of that person while engaged in knitting.  I have then decided to hold that person in loving thoughts while I knit.  I guess that would make the item a PRAYER KNIT ARTICLE?

What things are you working on that you could call a PRAYER ______ ARTICLE?
