Breast Cancer Blanket

I was in bible study a couple weeks ago and we took a moment to pray for one of the women's mother who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I instantly knew I wanted to knit something for her and a few other women were interested in doing something too. I couldn't decide what to make, a hat, shawl, or blanket. I'm not sure if she is going to go through chemo or not but I do know she's going into surgery. I figure a blanket would be best. Who doesn't like a bright cheerful blanket. And the yarn I'm using is black and different shades of pink, very breast cancer appropriate don't you think? Well, anyway here's a picture of my progress.




It's knitted diagonally and probably looks really mishapened but that's just because the stitches are all bunched on the needles. The corner is curling a bit too but I think with some blocking when I'm finished it should be fine. I'm just really hoping it isn't so bright that she won't like it...

Hi Divaknitter! It's a great color and she'll love it. And she'll be so glad to see someone cared.

The writer of prayerknits.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: Build a system that even a computer illiterate can use, and only computer illiterates will want to. I will be back.
