Been knitting "shawls" instead of lap blankets for those in nursing homes. Also am knitting a few for the "transportation van" in this county that takes the elderly to and from medical appointments. (This system took me into the hospital for hip surgery as well as to an eye surgery center for catarac removal a few years back.) Here are my newest creations: The first was made extra long just in case someone needing a shawl is extra large. I used a 41-peg "round" loom for this. The next one is being created on a "rectangular" loom that will produce a shawl 24" wide. As you can see I'm placing a colorful strip down the middle from end to end. This is a 60-peg loom and I'm using five (5) threads at the same time.
