Thanks men for the support and caring I appreciate it! I kinda felt this website was this supportive. I have taken a picture of one of the shawls that I mentioned in the blog. I made this one first for my mother. After dad passed away this August I found the shaw I was so excited I almost lost it that mom kept it all these years. I made it about 1974 or 5. When I found it I immediately wrapped myself in it, almost feeling moms warmth.
