Bereavement Shawl

Using US8 needles, Plymouth Yarn Dreamin', Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran, and Patons Beehive Baby Sport and THIS pattern for the Triangular Garter Stitch Shawl, this measures approx. 39"x70".  It's headed to St. Paul, Minnesota in honor of the Ravelry group Wrapped In Care.  It's for some woman who has lost her baby, and making bereavement shawls is what this group does.  A few years ago I made a blue one and so now I got enough courage to knit up a pink/white one.  A lot of tears and prayers for the recipient goes into making one of these.
ps. The link doesn't want to work, but the site is of the Rainey sisters who wrote up the pattern.  You may try the Ravelry group too to find the link.

    Very nice work! I know how hard it is to knit bereavement items. I haven't been able to knit any in a while, even though I know these gifts are needed and really do help.
