Knit Purl ... Knit Purl

Ohhh, how pretty is Karen's Lockhart's Knit Purl Basket Stamp! Me, myself, and I do not knit, crochet, or even sew ... but I know plenty of people who have those talents and this set is for one such lady. Some time ago, Carol made a lap blanket for a friend who found herself unexpectedly in the hospital, fighting an infection that threatened to take her life. Carol then asked her Sunday School class to pray over the lap blanket before taking it to the hospital. It was a beautiful thought and the gift meant a lot to the recipient. So ....
before you knew it, many ladies were making many lap blankets with many many balls of yarn! And sent them to many people who were very sick with cancer, tumors, infections, surgeries, etc. But never a lap blanket gets sent without first having 20-30 people each hold an edge and cover that person and the lap blanket in prayer. Such a simple idea. Such a big impact.
I feel so privileged to know Carol. And I wanted her to know. Enjoy!
