My WIP this week is a child’s shawl based on a pattern called Cloud on Her Shoulders. This is a free pattern by someone who makes a lot of shawls for cancer patients and nursing home residents. She mentioned something I hadn’t thought of – wheelchair patients and anyone who has to sit most of the day will do better with a shawl that does not have a point that can get caught in wheels and short enough not to be bulky when sitting. I’m auditioning this in a child’s size with the thought of making it for senior ladies to help them be warm and comfortable.
I finished my Little Lacy Shawl made from gift yarn and I think it turned out well, although using dark fingering weight yarn is not my strong point. I had my younger daughter model it – I know I’ll be using it a lot.
I also finished the little 0-3 months sweater WIP from last week and added a hat to match.
