Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

Mother's Day is fast approaching, its on Sunday May 9th this year. Show mom, grandma or a special woman in your life how much you love her by creating one of these lovely shawls for her.

Schaefer's lovely Anne Shoulder Shawl, designed by the talented Chris Carrol, will help mom ward off any chill!

Needles: size US 7 (4.5mm)

And Schaefer's Anne is On Sale!

Never Not Knittings' Cedar Leaf Shawlette is a tiny crescent shaped shawlette that drapes beautifully around your shoulders and looks absolutely stunning wrapped around your neck as a scarf. This design marries designer Alana Dakos' two favorite things in the whole world, the color green and knitted leaves.

The curved stockinette stitch body is created through the use of short rows, and the beautiful leafy border is knit onto the body of the shawlette after its completed. The construction is easy, no seaming or picked up stitches.

As you can see, the shawlette is quite versatile, it can be successfully worn several different ways.
