I am still busily knitting on my “Ample Shawl”. But today I have decided that it is time to check the dimensions of that huge green thing. It is growing very nicely as you can see.
The pattern for the “Ample Shawl” is my own. I will publish it when I am finished knitting it. I love shawls a lot more than I like sweaters. Shawls are so wonderful versatile. They are a perfect cover up when my baby needs to nurse. They can be wrapped around the baby or toddler instead of the blanket for warmth or comfort. And my older kids love snuggling together with me under the shawl, shutting the world out. A shawl wound around my shoulders is like a huge woolly hug. And most of these things are just not possible with a sweater. There is just one thing I dislike about shawls – it is them slipping of my shoulders. So I make my shawls huge and slip-proof.
