Every stitch a prayer~
a dear and precious friend
fighting for his life~
a wife who carries the weight
of worry and the unknown
on her shoulders~
~anxious hearts filled with prayers
for this dear husband, father, grandfather,
comfort for my dear girlfriend
as she braves herself for her husband's
battle against this mighty

the bitter winds of winter--
no names spoken--
(I loved this yarn -- maybe as much or more than any yarn I have ever knitted with --but the downside to the yarn is that it is rather costly.
The yarn is discounted, however, when you order from
this yarn is light as a feather -- I used 8 skeins and when the wrap was finished
it was light as air -- but SO incredibly warm
if you have travel plans and need to pack lightly --
THIS is the yarn to travel with -
it weighs NOTHING!

Knitting prayers of

filled with prayers
for our dear friend
and his family

but the words inside are ever
constant, strong and true~
your prayers for our dear, dear friend

my heartfelt gratitude to you all
who sent emails to me filled with appreciation for my
recent Grow Your Blog party.
I received literally hundreds of emails, and
I just could not possibly answer them all.
Please do not feel slighted if I did not answer your email --
in most cases (when I am not so overwhelmed) I DO answer every single email
that I receive.
Now that things have slowed down a bit --
if you wish me to email you regarding a concern or question --
please send me an email me again.
I promise to answer you.
To those of you who left comments and emails
asking to be added in after the party had started --
I am so sorry, but I just could not do that.
I spent hours and hours adding in blogs to meet the deadline --
over 600 blogs,
and at some point, I just had to be finished.
I hope you understand.
Please watch my blog sometime in the late fall,
most likely October,
when I will start to talk about next year's party details.
