When I was first diagnosed with BC, I told my mom I needed a "cancer project." I thought knitting an afghan would be a good idea. Since she loves to knit, she agreed. She had a pattern that she thought I could handle, and together we shopped for yarn. Now the truth is, I stink at knitting, but I have been determined to finish what I started and here it is!!!


  1. Robin, the afghan looks wonderful! I'm so proud of you. Look at all you have accomplished this year...many things you never dreamed you'd be doing, I'm sure. You go girl!!!

    Corla :)

  2. Robin,
    You are a very talented women!I know it got a little tough sometimes and Gilda had to come to the rescue but it looks good now. I do know how to knit too so when we are old and have "nothing" to do we can meet togather and knit!
    Take Care and enjoy your days off.
    Love Cindy

  3. I'm super impressed! And think of the journey that that blanket has been through already!

  4. Wow,and if that afghan could talk-I know it has a lot of meaning to you. That is very cool Robin!!
    You look great too:)
    Love you!
    You are a STRONG WOMAN!!!

  5. Awesome! I love your shirt too :) When so many things in life are so out of control don't you just love having control of something - like setting a goal and accomplishing it? You've inspired me to pick up a project that I've pushed to the back of the closet!

  6. The afghan is amazing, almost as amazing as you! Look at all that you've been through and how you've fought your way through all of it! You are an incredibly strong, committed woman of faith. I am in awe of how you've handled your diagnosis, treatment and recovery. You have fought like a girl and are a survivor!

    Love you,

  7. Hallelujah! And, you did a beautiful job on the afghan! xoxoxo Pearly, Cindy & Sammy

    Love, Jocelyn
