Party Shoes

There are limits to knitting. I know, I know, it feels almost blasphemous to say so, but there are certain things knitting simply cannot do, where it becomes, dare I say it, useless. Nevertheless, knitting’s all I’ve got, so this is my birthday gift to my darling friend Lucy:

But it’s soft, it’s silky, it’s in a hand-dyed shade of coral pink called ‘Party Shoes’, and it’s packed with as much love and good-old knitting mojo as I could muster. Besides, knowing Lucy, that crappy illness is getting its arse soundly kicked already.

    the shawl is gorgeous. I’m sure Lucy will feel your hugs and well-wishes when she wears it. (knitting is all I’ve got, too – and that’s what I tell myself about my knitted gifts!)

    I think your fabulous shawl will be very useful to Lucy, as comfort and encouragement. It can’t fight the battle for her (noone can), but it (and you) can definitely be on her side.

  3. I think it’s a beautiful gesture and Lucy will adore it.

    That’s a beautiful gift and a beautiful gesture…and a beautiful yarn too, I know because I’ve got some but I’m keeping it for myself!

    It’s a really nice thought, a little softness in a rough time.
    You are a good friend, good luck and lots of positive thought for her
