A few weeks ago, my friend Mary asked me to knit shawls for her daughter and granddaughters who are going through a rough patch. She said I knit faster than she does (I think I just have more time to knit). She provided me with yarn from stash.
She said the five-year-old is a real girly-girl, so something lacy would be suitable.
My first attempt was much too small, so I redid it. The pictures are a combination of the original and the 'real' one.
Mary said the eight-year-old is more snuggly, so something a bit more tailored would be good.
I wound up making two adult shawls, because I felt Mary's other daughter who is helping out deserved one too. I don't know which one will be for Mommy and which for Auntie.
