Crocheting through Chemo Session #2

Chemo Session #2 project: simple black shrug for myself. I used a white dishcloth my mother hand stitched as back drop, the black yarn is hard to see, white background helps the stitches stand out. My mom couldn't be there with me for chemo today due to flooding in Minnesota, but her dishcloth with oranges embroidered on it made me feel like she was there.

Crocheting through chemo

I felt the overwhelming urge to crochet....I can't take a break. I see a need for folks to keep warm during chemo, my gears are ticking on what I can crochet for those feeling the effects of chemo and don't have someone close to them that knits or crochets. Caps, Prayer Shawls, lap-ghans. Love wrapped in yarn's knots. I will crochet thorough my next chemo session, which is tomorrow, and I will be joined by my knitting mother. Love wraps itself around those knots, I know it.
