Shrug It Off – The Kind of Woman I Want to Be (pt. 2)

Hi there! Welcome back. In this post, we’ll be focusing on the rest of the knitting to make the shrug. If you haven’t started it yet, check out this post to begin.

Cozy Shrug (pt. 2)

  1. Knit one row
  2. Purl the next
  3. Continue in this fashion for 40 rows. It will be as long in the back as it is when it’s on your needles, so make sure it’s as long as you want it! If you want a really long, slouchy shrug, continue to knit more, until it’s the length you desire.
  4. Cast off of your needles (it should be just one long rectangle. In the next blog, we’ll be forming the shrug!)

Just keep knitting, just keep knitting! You’re almost there. Don’t get lazy or bored, remember to meditate and pray while knitting. I love to sit in our chapel on campus and pray for the person I’m knitting for. Being there helps me to focus on them. I hope you are doing well and enjoying the idea of knitting and praying!

I have looked up to so many women in my life. From family members, to friends from high school and college, to youth group friends, to fellow counselors from camp, I have learned so much about what it means to be a woman of God to those around you.

To be filled with grace is to imitate our Mother Mary. She took everything Christ said or did in His life, and held it in her heart. She desired so deeply to obey Him, to trust Him, and give everything she had to Him.

Let us be more like her.

“And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.” -Luke 2:19 & 2:51
