Prayer shawl

My daughter is involved with a friend that just went through treatment for breast cancer and asked me if I would like to do some prayer shawls for the relay race.When I met her friend I thought how thankful I am that so far none of my sisters,nieces or my daughter had such an awful experience like some women and I would be more than happy to make shawls, if it would help someone feel better or give them comfort in any way it would make me feel that in some little way I have helped. I wish that the yarn mills would do something to help people have ends or discontenuied yarns and make 1 lb. or so bags at a price so we that do the making could make more so every women that goes through treatment for cancer has one. I have used homespun yarn plus 100% cotton and I'm wo

rking on a wool one now out of skeins left over from other projects.
I know that I spend every minute right now trying too get 12 or more shawls done for Sandi's group by the holidays. I have just learned to crochet so I purchased some baby yarn in pink and white(lion) and it makes a beautiful soft shawl. I've also gottn some white Jamie yarn to try. Anytime I see some on sale I buy as much as I can to make another. I love the V pattern I found on the back of a paper on the skien of yarn. I wish I could get a group of friends together to have a bunch made but when you work all week it doesn't leave much time.
