From Susan — Wrap it Up

Filed under: Wrapped in Care,Wrapped in Care — lv2knit @ 9:32 pm

In June of 2008, I posted about a program at the hospital where I work called the Wrapped in Care Program.  Women who suffer infant loss are given a handmade shawl as a way of saying we care, we are thinking  about you, you are not alone.  Many of you generously knitted and crocheted shawls for the program and for that I am so grateful.  I received a call this week from Dee Moore saying that they are running low on shawls.

I know many of you are crazy busy with the holidays — either doing your last minute knitting or shopping or getting ready for all of the festivities.  These shawls do not need to be done right away!  They can be knit any time throughout the upcoming year.   In fact, it would be preferred that they kind of trickle in as space is at a premium.   If you find yourself looking for a project that would find a good home, please consider this one.

Please read this brochure for details and mailing information.  THANK YOU!!


  1. I love this! Such a beautiful way to be thinking about others.

  2. I will certainly become a part of this project. How I wish someone had knitted a shawl for me 40 years ago when we lost our first baby. Just knowing that someone had taken the time to share in our loss would have meant so much. Thanks for sharing this information.

  3. This is such a wonderful coincidence because I am near finishing a shawl that was intended for charity, except I didn’t know a charity that took shawls. Now I do!

  4. I have another one done, waiting to be blocked and “killed” during my time off next week. Thanks for keeping this wonderful project going!
