Comfort a Friend
Mood:  lucky
Now Playing: Bruce Hornsby and the Range "Every Little Kiss"
Topic: Thoughtful
Right now, I know two wonderful people who are at the beginning process of getting divorced. Their spouses left them for someone else. I'm not here to make a commentary on that, as it's none of my business. But, I have thought about how I want these two people to know that I'm thinking of them.

So I came up with an idea yesterday. Why not knit shawls for these two beautiful women? Something that lets them know that they are loved and that I'm are thinking of them.

So many of us know someone going through a divorce. We don't know how to comfort them. Sometimes people in divorce even loose friends, but the good friends stick around.

So what I'm proposing is that if you know someone going through a divorce, knit them a shawl. I'm calling this "Comfort A Friend". It doesn't have to be "Birch" that you knit, but even a simple triangular or rectangular shawl that they can wrap around their shoulders and feel the warmth of your friendship and caring. And if you have a male friend going through a divorce, you can knit them mittens, a scarf or an afghan.

Everyone that signs up for this will be added to the side of my blog as being part of the Comfort A Friend Knit along. Let me know what you plan to knit, and when you'll be starting. Keep me updated. I'll post your blog link in my most recent entry when you send in an update so people can know where you are on your project. You can e-mail me at Baycolonyfarm at aol dot com .

It's that simple. Comfort a Friend and let them know you care.

And Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish, but my husband and kids are, so we'll be doing a little celebrating tonight, but no corned beef! :-P

Helen, this is a wonderful idea. I have a good friend who has been going through a terrible divorce. I'll give this some thought - I'm not sure she's a shawl person but maybe handknit socks would be the thing for her.
