Completed #1 Shawl!

The knitting has been completed! I'm very pleased with the knitting. I used Malabrigo Lace weight yarn and matched it with the pattern from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle.

This shawl is a "prayer shawl" for a good friend of mine that I affectionately refer to as #1. She just completed her 3rd round of chemotherapy. They expect that she'll have up to another 8 rounds before she's completed her first attack on the breast cancer. As I write this, the shawl is soaking before I block it. My hope is to deliver it friday.

She's asked me to bring over my clippers so I can shave her head to help with losing her hair.

First, I love that book! I'm itching to make the kimono shawl. Such beautiful options in one book!

I think your friend will love this shawl! It's going to be like getting a super soft warm "Knittingbrow" hug whenever she wears it!

You are a wonderful friend!
