Those who attended the Fiber Fest may have seen the demonstration that Laura B. held on Pin Looms.

Prayer shawls provide comfort to those who make them as well as to the recipients of these special gifts. However, it can take a long time to knit or crochet a shawl and some people, although they appreciate the gift of one, don’t ever wear shawls.
Pocket prayer shawls address both of those issues, allowing crafters to quickly work up comforting handmade squares that any recipient can carry at any time for constant comfort. These small squares can be knit, crochet or sewn.
Weavers, spinners, quilters, crocheters, knitters - work on a variety of projects, and from time to time some projects become stalled or are forgotten.
Let's be honest: we all have unfinished projects (UFOs) tucked away in bags, boxes, and baskets. It might be time to come up with a plan to tackle them and to gain some room in your closets or project bags. You may want to find a new home for some projects, salvage supplies from another, and finally complete those that you love.
McCall's Quilting's blog published a strategy to deal with Projects in Bags, and maybe it will give you the nudge that you need.
According to Roving Crafters, "It's difficult to find explanations on how to turn on corner with a knitted-on border because the specifics will be different for every border.

Roving Crafters website provides specific information on the various techniques for turning the corner and how to make those judgement calls.
