For the love of knitting

Lately I have been doing a lot of knitting for friends that are going through some rough times. Even though my life isn't easy right now, these ladies are facing some terrible obstacles. I know they are strong and will make it through no matter what, but they will be changed and I pray for the better when all is said and done. No matter we have going on, we have so much to be grateful for. While you knit today, think about all the things you have to be thankful for. It will make your day so much better.

Everyone knows that I love Entrelac knitting. And I was fortunate to find on Ravelry this great pattern. Triangle Entrelac Shawls by Diane Conroy . This was the perfect shawl to make for my friend Suzan. She's a tiny lady and needed something big, snugly and warm. This is a wonderful pattern, easy to knit up and Diane also has some other Entrelac patterns that you might be interested in.

Update: 4/14

My friend sent me a picture of her and the prayer shawl/blanket. She looks great with it.

Once I finished the Triangle Entrelac Shawl, I started Jared Flood's Hemlock Ring. This is also a gift for someone. I have done a lot more work on it, and I love how it's coming together. I have made the inside a light yellow, and then change out to a pale blue. It's coming out really well. You can find the pattern info not only on his blog but on Ravelry.

I'll be posting more pictures soon.

Blessed be
