The 1st is a knit lap blanket in wedding colors. All I had to work with was Instagram photos. I just knitting and did a pattern as I felt like it. Instead of joining at the ends, I joined when my yarn ran out, just for a change.
The Virus Shawl was already a work in progress but I decided to flip it and a gift in another direction. The first pink strip is in relation to cancer. Her hubby has had various cancer fights and won those. She also likes pink so that chose the soft rose color for the second strip.
