Just finished a quick knit!
Hi everyone!

I just finished knitting/crocheting this up for a friend who lost her husband just a month after mine passed away, and she's now undergoing chemo for cancer. Thought a "real" hug would be better than a virtual one for her. I used Red Heart, pale yellow, and with size 9 needles it's got so much drape! Mailed it off to her today, she should be receiving it Thursday.

It actually only took me 3 days to make it.
