I knitted this necklace for my friend and neighbor who was diagnosed with throat cancer a short while ago.
It took me from the time of her diagnosis in February until she had finished her radiation treatments two weeks ago to make it--that tiny yarn is some hard to work.
I told her it was like a prayer shawl, only much smaller, and secular. It's to bring good health to her neck and throat. The succulent merino wool feels so good, it's sure to be healing.
