I will say that giving this shawl as a gift was just about as exciting as me giving it to myself. There is something very feminine about wearing a shawl and I knew my mom would love it. I knit it from the same yarn as my own because I LOVED the color so much and felt like it went with so many other colors. This pattern is so sweet and I loved every stitch I made.
I made my mom's a bit bigger than mine because I wish mine were bigger. I like the feeling this shawl has when draped and worn as a shoulder shawl so I went for a bigger size for mom's.
I feel like I am writing a 5th grade essay called "What You Gave Your Mom for Mother's Day"..sorry about that. I am so worn out right now. I have been a busy little mama these last few days and I just sat down for the first time in a few days (at least that's what it feels like)...so simple 5th grade essay's is all I have in me tonight.
But I must tell you about my pin on MY shawl. My friend MADE it for me!! I was so THRILLED. I LOVE IT!! I basically get up in the morning and think..."mmm...what goes with my new pin?" I never knew I could love a pin so much..and a pin that goes with my Piper's Journey?? I am not sure if she reads my blog....but if she does then I will take the chance to say...I LOVE MY PIN!! I LOVE that you made it and that you gave it to ME!! I want you to make more..it is so beautiful!!
That is all folks...and if my love wakes up and reads this I want to say..
I LOVE you!!
