Joy in anticipation
How we wish everyone could see this beautiful blanket in person! Part of it's beauty is in it's story and that you can share in!
Eileen, a lovely KnitWit in the Thursday group, is expecting another, very special granddaughter! Her daughter Katie is a physical therapist and is adopting a precious little 5 year old named Katie Lyn. It has taken almost a year to get everything together, but in God's time they will meet for the first time in just a couple of weeks and make the trip to their new home. You see, Katie Lyn is severely handicapped and blind and living in a facility in Oklahoma. Eileen has made this beautiful blanket out of Lambie Pie yarn, so it is nice and soft. She wanted a pretty border, so another of our KW's, LaLise crocheted the border you see in the picture....the whole thing is just beautiful!
What a joy to have a sister come along side and help.
Eileen is also making a little blanket to give to Katie Lyn's room mate. And another KW has given a lovely blue/green shawl of cameo and feather wisp to give to Katie(mom)!
There will be a lot of adjusting for both girls and for Eileen's daughter Katie. Your prayers for them all are a treasure...thank you in advance for joining in the joy of praying for this wonderful work of love!
