The joy from giving a prayer shawl
Created By: Johanna Waller

My family doctor's daughter has a rare form of leukemia. She was diagnosed at 3 1/2 years old and was in remisson by 5. She began feeling poorly this past fall right after her 8th birthday. She had many colds but no new cancer. In January, a mass on her lung was found. My doctor and her family were devastated. Her daughter was ready for whatever was to come. Here baby blanket had gotten very worn out from her early years of chemo treatment. Her favorite colors are pink and purple. I decided to make her prayr shawl in hopes that she would find a little comfort. I knitted the shawl using Homespun Fuschia. It took me 3 days of diligent knitting after work to finish quickly. She's been in and out of the hospital several times for treatment and fevers. Last week I had a yearly check up. I was afraid to ask about the prayer shawl in fear that she didn't like it. As soon as my doctor walked in the examining room, sh thanked me for the "beautiful shawl" stating that every time her daughter goes to the doctor or had to go to the hospital, it was the first thing packed into her suitcase. It was wonderful to know that something I had created brought so much joy. It was only my second knitting project that I had ever made. Johanna Waller
