    This is great. I have Graves Disease, so I love this.

    My thyroid was taken out (due to cancer) last January, so I had quite a laugh when I saw this!

    I always find it interesting, as a knitter, when I see someone knit up a body part. The first item I ever saw was a uterus to help explain the birth process to pregnant teens!

    Awesome, I’d love to send one of these to my Oncologist.
