The afghan is beautiful so far! I think the hat will be great. Every time I see that hat it makes me smile! You really are a good friend

I have a good friend who is suffering from breast cancer. She loves having flowers in her house. She might appreciate the flowers more later rather than in the hospital. If she does have chemo, my friend said the silk sock yarn I was knitting with would make a great chemo cap-very soft and warm but also light.

Thanks for the update - the cables look wonderful and I really like the color. Sounds like she is doing well - I will continue to pray.

When my brother was in the hospital after having a heart attack, my niece made him a blanket out of fleece. It had the fringe cut on the edges. She and her children tied two fringes together to make a knot. Every time they tied a knot, they said a prayer for him. She took it to the hospital at the foot of his bed and put a note on it. The note said, "If you would like to tie a knot and say a prayer for my dad, please do so and when he gets out of the hospital, he will be able to cover himself with prayers from the people that care for him". They are not hard to make, if you like this idea.
