Prayer shawl

A neighbor with breast cancer received a prayer shawl and I decided to look it up on the Internet.

I finally made one this past October for my grandma's birthday, which was just this Monday, the 22nd of November using Lion Brand Homespun in Delft, since blue is her favorite color.

She is now 88 and has asthma, chronic bronchitis and frequent bouts of pneumonia.

I sent her a card explaining the Trinity Stitch and the prayers I often repeated for her as I knit. She who rarely uses the phone even called me to say thank you and say that she didn't know that knitting stitches could have stories.

I have another friends who is in need of comforting and I have purchased yarn for her shawl, too.

I look forward to getting started on it soon.
