Comfort Shawl
Pattern is from Michaels Loops & Threads yarn, titled "Friendship Shawl." My SIL was diagnosed with colon cancer and undergoing chemo. I had made this shawl before and immediately thought it would be nice for her to wear when getting chemo. I call it the "comfort shawl" and told her when she needs a hug or just gets chilly to wrap this around and feel the hugs. She is going to send me a picture of her wearing it at chemo next week. Thanks for looking.

What a wonderful thought, a hug anytime needed.

A beautiful lace, exquisitely knit and finished.

Thanks, Lana. Made it with a heavy heart but I knew she would really appreciate it. She loved the thought of getting "hugs" whenever she wanted too.

great pattern! And a lot of endurance to finish but it was worth it!

Thanks, it really wasn't that difficult. I have gotten so I enjoy doing lace patterns. Of course I was rushing to get it finished and in the mail to my SIL so she could have the benefit of it while going through chemo.

Thank you, she does love it. This is my sister-in-law and we live 7 hours from her so it was all I could think of to do since I am not there to help her.
