Response from prayer shawl
My co-workers mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about a month ago. I knit her a prayer shawl and I received the kindest note from her, saying that no one has ever done anything like that for her before and she has never owned anything so beautiful! I was just so happy that she appreciated it and will enjoy it...very gratifying. My co-worker was thrilled with it also..

That's great that she truly appreciates it.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

It's wonderful that you made that for her.
Shows how much you care.

How nice of you to knit that for her. It's wonderful to know she appreciated it. I was soooo nervous giving the the first few prayer shawls I didn't know how they would be received. I've done several now and have found that people love them.
