Clue 3 Finished and a Prayer Request

This is just loosely stretched enough to take the photo. I think mine is going to be bigger than the pattern calls for but that is okay because so am I! LOL Actually I am not sure whether or not I will keep this for myself or give it to someone in my shawl ministry. I may wait and see when it is done. Usually when I pick out a pattern for someone in the shawl ministry, I see something that "just fits" their personality or style. That is why I am uncertain because it hasn't "struck" me yet!

I thought Clue 3 was the easiest so far. I am looking forward to Clue 4 which is going to be longer because of that book coming out this weekend. Since I am not going to be reading, I will be working on the shawl inbetween socks I am finishing for people and getting ready for my Mom and Jack arriving in 2.5 weeks.

And speaking of my shawl ministry, please pray for Kathy. She is the second person to receive one of my shawls and she is the second woman to succumb to Ovarian Cancer. She has bravely tried every possible treatment but her doctors told her there are no more things to try. Hospice services have been called in and unless the Great Physician heals her on earth, she will be going Home to Him. Please pray for her husband as this is his second wife he has lost. He is a Believer but this is a challenge to one's faith. Kathy is my Mom's neighbor. Please pray that her journey will be bearable if she must go. Thank you.

Oh Theresa, your shawl is gorgeous. I will definitely be praying for Kathy and her husband. Bless their hearts.

I'm sure it will come to you whether to keep this beautiful shawl for yourself or to gift it to someone else.

Blessings to you this week!

I'm sorry for your friend. I lost a dear friend that way, also. I pray peace will reign in their home and in their hearts. Yes, it is a challenge to our faith and these are the times we need to remember that we can do all things through Christ.

I agree, I'd wait on deciding who this shawl will go to until we know what it is.
