Holy and Precious
Angel Karen Egolf from Wheeling, IL sent in her first batch of yarny goodness for the year this week, and all kinds of wonderful things were in it! Just look at the hat and matching mittens for a toddler up top -- perfect for one of the children we serve at Parenting PROgress. And the teen moms will love the hats next to them -- I just love the lace edging Karen knitted on the edge. These lovelies will also be perfect for them:
Karen's cabling is just gorgeous, and I envy her skill with lace -- so beautiful!She also made some great baby things for our newborns at Swedish Covenant Hospital -- and they will be delivered this coming week!
Over 300 babies are being born each month at Swedish Covenant Hospital, so they were very happy to learn the Angels had filled TWO GIANT BINS with baby blankets and TWO LARGE bins with baby hats and sweaters already this year!Angel Karen was also thinking about the women in Cornerstone Community Outreach's shelters when she made these lovely spa cloths:
I truly do believe that the Angels take something mundane -- basically sticks, hooks, and string -- and with love, care, creativity, and skill, turn the mundane into love gifts that are indeed part of God's grand plan. The resulting yarny goodness is most certainly holy and precious in His eyes, and in the eyes of the recipients. Thank you, Karen, for creating such holy and precious gifts!
