My sister, who lives way across the country to the southeast of me, requested a prayer shawl for a lady who is receiving chemo for lung cancer. I feel so honored to be asked to make a shawl to bless and comfort her. The pattern is the "Lydia Shawl", simple and fast yet very pretty.
S. Charles Collezione Mosaic in red tweed, a discontinued yarn. It is 83% wool with polymide and acrylic. Note the very thin black threads running through the red. That thread has the colorful bits that make the tweedy part of this yarn which waited in stash since 2002 for just this project of blessing.
I am using a size H hook to make it open with a gentle drape. It gets very hot and humid where she lives, so nix to anything too bulky.
