Woman uses crochet to comfort hospital patients
WOODRIDGE – During the past year-and-a-half, a local woman has used the art of crocheting to bring hope and encouragement into hospital patients’ lives.
Shelly Nelson has crocheted and donated a dozen prayer shawls, 90 chemotherapy hats and 400 surgery pillows to Adventist Bolingbrook, Adventist GlenOaks, Adventist Hinsdale and Adventist La Grange memorial hospitals.
“As you crochet the shawls, you say prayers of healing, and then those are given to the patients as a piece of comfort,” said Nelson, whose grandmother taught her how to crochet when she was 8 years old.
