We spent a lot of time in the hospital last year and a shawl would have been such a sweet reminder that someone cares.. you can feel so alone in the hospitalQUOTE]
Aineepooh - Thank you for your compliments!! I hope everything is okay now (with the past year being in the hospital)!!
I love it! Such a beautiful color!!! How exactly are prayer shawls used?
Rachel - Thank yoU! You can read more here, but they're used to give comfort, to people in the hospital, elder care homes, or just for someone that you care about. This to me, is what a prayer shawl does for the recipient "they wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify."
(If you don't mind my asking, what is the yarn?)
IBAmy - thanks!! I knit it with US16 circs and Lion brand Glitterspun in Onyx and Lion brand Colorwaves in Sunset Red.
That is beautiful - and I'm sure will be a great blessing to your friend!
Thank you AussieYank!! I just found out this evening from her husband that if she hadn't gone to the doctor on Monday, the infection would have been fatal, so we're all praying really hard for her to get better!!
What a lovely gift! I hope your friend makes a full recovery soon!
