friends knit and crochet together

At the beginning of this year, Cathy suggested a group project for Carole, who was dealing with ovarian cancer. A bunch of us knitted and crocheted 8-inch squares and mailed them to Cathy for assembly. She knitted I-cord to go in between all of the squares (yikes!!!), and then put a garter stitch border all the way around.

The project has been completed for a while now, and Carole is cancer free. I saw her recently, and she looks fantastic. She was nice enough to bring the afghan to our meeting, and I took pictures. As good as it looks here, it's even more beautiful in real life.
