I started working on it while sitting in my mom’s hospital room. If you have ever had to sit in a hospital room of a loved one, you know there isn’t much to do except worry. So that is what I did. I poured all my worry, frustration, and love into this shawl. I cannot tell you how many times I had to to start over, because my tension was all over the place.
When I started working on this, I knew it was going to be for my mom. I mean, being there with was was the whole reason I started it. I wanted it to be light and breathable. My parents live in Texas, so lightweight is beyond necessary. Caron Cotton Cakes was an obvious choice, especially since that was the only yarn I had on me!
