#47 Lincoln, NE

The shawl arrived at my home on June 26. I knew as soon as I saw the box, it was my turn. One of 50 knitters who would share a project, that could make a difference---that could help find a cure. When I first saw the project on Ravelry, I thought it was an amazing idea. I have knit prayer shawls for several years, but to have one shawl created by so many hands, whose story is spread across the country seemed pretty powerful.
Over the past few years, I have known several women who have fought battles with cancer. One lost her battle, another is fighting the disease for a second time. Several have gone through surgery, chemo and radiation---they are probably the bravest people I know.
