I come to list this pattern, and realize... I don't know what to say. This shawl was born out of grief. Conceived and knit within 48 hours, it truly opened my eyes to knitting as therapy.
Years and years ago, my Gramma suffered a devastating stroke. It shattered everyone, cause I honestly think until then we all truly believed she was indestructible. She was this amazing woman who did so much for all of us and had lived through so many trials. I knit her a shawl, when she moved into a care home. She treasured it! After Gramma's death this summer, someone thought to send that shawl back to me. I had always meant to make her another, and never did do it. So. I finally did.
