There is nothing more wonderful than the feeling of being wrapped in crochet. I see the look on my kiddos’ faces when they wrap themselves in one of the afghans I have made for them through the years….the soft cuddly yarn seems to soothe the weariest of hearts. In fact, all three of my kiddos were sick this week, and my hubby too…..but, it was nice to see them get some comfort from their favorite “blankies,” each of which were truly stitched with love.
Well tonight, I thought I would share my favorite crocheted comfort piece. It is a shawl made of lace weight cotton or maybe, size 10. I did not make it – but, it was made for me by a local artisan in Manila who I met while living there. I wore it tonight to our parish’s volunteer appreciation banquet and I felt all warm and snuggly the entire night. It was a nice treat after a long week of meeting deadlines, caring for sick children and my husband, doing laundry, and everything else we moms have to juggle on a day-to-day basis.
It is a joy to be wrapped in crochet. So, what is your favorite hand-made comfort piece?
