Finished Object Friday: Garter Stitch Throw

This throw is the first knitting project that I’ve completed since I went on a knitting hiatus for 2 years.  It took me about 2.25 months to finish it. Not bad for jumping into it after taking a break:

As I worked on it, I thought a lot about the role hospice plays in the United States. I am thankful for the existence of palliative care and wish more people knew about it.

Today, I dropped the blanket in the mail. It now goes to join hospice teams in my region to contribute towards the goals that all hospice staff have: to provide patients with comfort and to help them live the lives they want to live.

Work in Progress Wednesday: Of Feathers and Fans

This is the start of a second blanket for Compassionate Care Hospice:

I’m quite pleased with it! It’s a classic feather and fan pattern and is knitting up quite nicely:

I hope it will keep a patient warm this winter!
