Each Stitch is a Kiss.

I originally joined a group at my local church. Due to unforeseen demands on my time, I was unable to get back to the meetings at the times specified. I decided that I would continue to knit the shawls and give them to my family and friends. Everyone wanted one. My Kids, their husbands, my grandchildren and I have had some seriously ill friends who have been truly grateful. I even donated one to my sorority to auction off at our Xmas Bazaar. I have made them in different sizes. Small ones for little children, ones that approximate a stole size in case someone wants to wear it to go somewhere, and larger ones for people who are ill. I have even made one at the request of my daughter's Mexican housekeeper who said, "Please Senora Barbara, make it like a serape." I have loved making them. I am now on my 25th and going out this morning to buy more yarn. I always use Homespun. I have a couple stacked up in case I need one. They make wonderful gifts. I tell the recipients that each stitch is a kiss, each row a hug and the finished product one giant prayer for their wellbeing and happiness. The gratitude is worth every bit of effort. I like all of the colors and use them all.
