|My first shawl... |
this project is rather photogenic...
forgive me for my Kodak Fever...
|Knit for "Wrapped in Care" (a group I found on Ravelry). |
When I read the following about this group, I knew I wanted to participate;
it was just a matter of finding the right yarn and the perfect pattern:
"Knit a shawl for someone who must leave the birth center with empty arms.
This program will allow mothers who have suffered the death of an infant to be wrapped in the warmth of shawls during a very traumatic and painful time. In addition, if the mother is not discharged yet, they can also provide a far more beautiful background than a hospital gown for pictures that will be treasured for a lifetime.
We are knitting shawls for the Bereavement Program of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics --
St. Paul, Minnesota."
|Several months ago, I purchased several skeins of Berroco Comfort Chunky yarn in a lovely oat color.|
It was going to be a sweater for me, but the yarn got re-purposed for this project.
|The pattern is called "Saroyan" by Liz Abinante. A link to her website is HERE. |
The pattern is so beautiful; the minute I finished the first leaf in the shawl,
I knew I'd be making this pattern again.
|Lovingly knit in memory of my son Max|
