Mom in Her Stole

Mom wearing stole I knit for herHere is a picture of Mom wearing her new stole. I made it from five yarns I got at JoAnn Fabrics. She looks fabulous, doesn’t she? (Smaller picture is a detail of stole fabric up close.)

I stopped by Mom’s house late Monday night. One of her dear friends from the circle of women she’s hung out with since Daddy died, died this week of complications from melanoma. So sad. So I wanted to go and give mom a hug, and then give her the stole which can hug her when I’m not there.

Detail of stitchesI’m so glad I still have my Mom. She went through her own battle with cancer seven years ago, and now she has no sign of it. Knock on wood, we may still have many years together.

When your family is only you, Mom and brother Eric (and now our partners, makes six in the whole state of Michigan), you really know the value of one another.

And doesn’t she look just great? Go, Mom!!!

    When I wore the stole, my friends LOVED it and said I better not put it down or I might not find it!
    Thanks for the wonderful gift. Mom
