Prayers Please

This is a prayer shawl for my mother, Laura, who was newly diagnosed with
stage 2 colon cancer. I am asking that you please say a prayer for her while you read this post. We are not sure what the treatment will be, but we are pretty certain it will include chemo.
Thank you for sharing your love!!!! She will have this shawl around her to remind her of God's love and the love of her family, friends, and even complete strangers.
The shawl will be laid on the alter for prayer before giving it to her as well.

On a lighter note, I made this shawl using the Nifty Knitter loom....I DO NOT KNIT!!! Believe me, friends have tried to teach me.....I guess I'm so ADD that I can't keep the numbers straight....ba haaaaaa. If you look closely, you can find a cross charm in the tassels....

Blast from the past... the glue I used to make the bracelets is called E6000 Industrial Glue. I think it's pretty easy to find.

What a wonderful gift. Sending prayers her way.

Tracy,so very sorry to hear the news.
Rest assure that I will keep your mom in my daily prayers.
Your shawl is beautiful!
I am sure it will give your mom great comfort.
I love my Knifty Knitter looms!

I am sending prayers. That shawl is beautiful. It looks like your mom will be warm with love and blessings.

Praying for your Mom. This type of cancer runs in my family.

Lovely shawl. I cannot knit worth a darn either, crochet yes, knit no. I think I lack the two handed coordination to knit. I crochet holding the yarn in the wrong hand too - but the results are the same so that is what counts right? ~smile~

I am typing thru the tears...you guys are wonderful and I so appreciate your prayers and good wishes. Tonight I put on the shawl and wore it around the house as it was pretty chilly. I certainly feel the love you put into it, Traci, and could swear some of the fibers reached up and kissed my cheeks. Just love it and cherish it and all of you who are praying for me!!

I just found your blog by doing a search of "Nifty Knitter" in the Google blog search.

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom and I will be sure to keep her in my prayers.

I love your shawl. I just learned to knit scarves on the purple long Nifty Knitter loom this past weekend. I would love to try a shawl. Can you tell me which loom you used and how many strands of yarn you held together? It looks sort of like Homespun yarn by Lion Brand. Is that right?
