FO : Care Shawl
This is the shawl I asked when to send to a dear friend. Originally intended as a Christmas gift until she lost her beloved last weekend. It's relatively small as she is only 4'9"
It is Cascade Superwash

you've been busy!
you do excellent work.

I think a wonderful gift such as this shawl would be perfect for your friend in need of love at this difficult time in her life. It would be like a continuous hug from you whenever she wears it.
