When I thought about my mom’s upcoming surgery of course I wanted to do something to try and make it better. As a knitter, the first thing that came to mind was to knit a shawl, something to put around her shoulders to provide warmth and comfort.
This shawl was an absolute joy to knit. I used Brooks Farm Mas Acero yarn, which is a dreamy wool/silk blend.
My wonderful sister-in-law volunteered to stand in as the model, and I’ll admit we had quite a bit of fun with it. Actually, we have quite a bit of fun no matter what we’re doing.
The Mara Shawl would more technically be called a shawlette as it’s a bit smaller than most shawls. But mom loved the size as it was perfect for that little something to throw over your shoulders.
And yes, my mother loved it!
