Here it is ... that's my boy "modeling" it for me. My girl wasn't in a cooperative mood when I wanted to take the photo
I used the basic increase pattern I found here at KnittingHelp.com. I knit it for my very good friend who had a double-lung transplant in November 2006. She is just 40 years young, and suffered for 4 years with emphysema. She was hospitalized again this past Monday with pneumonia, so I finished it just in time to cheer her up. She's an amazing mom to 3 children - a 15 year old daughter, 13 year old son, and 11 year old daughter who has spina bifida. All of your prayers are greatly appreciated as her kids really want her back home as soon as possible!!!
OOOoooh that is lovely.. I prayer shawls b/c they are just so beautiful physically and sentimentally. i have a coworker 32! who has cancer and someone had given her a lovely pink chevron pattern prayer shawl while she was receiving chemo.. it was soo pretty . of course her 4 yr old dd had to take it for herself but you are a good friend by making it for her. 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 hospital~!
2 Knit or 2 Crochet~~ I am torn between 2 lovers !

That is beautiful - and I'm sure will be a great blessing to your friend! One of the things I love about knitting gifts is that part of the gift is just the time you gave to knit the gift and thinking of that person.
