this is a beautiful shawl, want to try it one day, thank you
This is such a nice project. As I look at it I see that it would be perfect for me to make fr my mother who s elderly. She has problems and pain in her right arm. This could help keep that arm warm and help her cradle it in place. The blue color is beautiful in the model photo. I think that buttons and other accessories can change the appearance with colors making this ideal to be done more than once for one person.
Looks cosy and easy to do.
