In Loving Memory of Zoe!

This pattern was created from the love and compassion of a friend in my 
time of grief.  I had to put my best  friend to sleep on September 15, 2010.
She was a beautiful 13 year old red bull terrier named Zoe, a companion
for life that I will miss  dearly. She had extremely allergies and poor immune system. 

 I was lucky to have her in my life to help her control her problems as a daily commitment.

 My friend Christa could  feel my loss, having suffered it herself.  We had talked only weeks before on creating a pattern using a changing of  the needles.  When she heard about Zoe, she went to work and in an evening blessed me with the “Hug of Love”  pattern.  It is written and given in Memory of  Zoe.  Out of this tragedy in my life  came something
good to share with others who need a huge hug when deep in their moment of grief. 
Christa brought a smile to  my face and a comfort to me that I didn’t stand alone.  I
share this pattern with you from  Christa and me, Cynthia, to enjoy the
process of knitting the hug and carrying our memory of the one we lost
with us forever, never ever to be  forgotten, and always to wrap our neck as
a hug! 

This is pattern is a FREE pattern you may copy!
