Introduction: Prayer Shawl

This prayer shawl was knit for a husband and wife struggling with alzheimers disease. I used the traditional shawl pattern knitting two strands together on (US 13 needles) symbolizing the couple holding together on their journey through light and shadow, represented by the Off-White and Mink Brown sections. The Mushroom, or cocoa colored yarn was held throughout.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Hey, thanks for leaving your nice and complimentary comment.

    This shawl is just beautiful. I have made several prayer shawls and given them to friends who are going through cancer treatment or divorce or grieving the death of a loved one. Lots of times we tell people we'll pray for them, but this is evidence that we actually have prayed for them and people just appreciate that so much.

    You are sooo right! Many times words aren't enough, or cannot convey the depth of my feelings for the people I knit for. It's true. The shawls that we knit have an effect that is quite indescribable. Thanks for your kind word about this one, and keep on knitting!
