Scarf, Shawl and Mittens oh my!

Finally I have finished Nancy's birthday scarf. It was just 29 days past her birthday, but it is finished. I didn't take a pix of it. I plan on trying to catch Nancy with it on and then post it.
I am working on a prayer shawl for church. Our church is planning on making 20 prayer shawls to take to our district conference. I tried the knit 3, purl 3 pattern for the shawl. It didn't hold my attention for too long. So I decided to knit the Wisp pattern again. I have made a few modifications to the pattern. I'm not adding buttons to it, therefore the need to make a button hole every 5 rows is not necessary. This pattern goes so quickly and I am truly enjoying just thinking and praying for the person who will use it.
I also whipped up some mittens for Miller. He had lost one of his waterproof mittens and his gloves weren't cutting it. The total time for the mittens was about 3 days. It was so easy to do while I was substitute teaching. During recess, I'd whip them out and start knitting on them. They were a great small project to take. I may have to do some socks for my subbing days so I have something small to take instead of my huge prayer shawl.
