I recently knitted a layette for a mom-to-be…well, make that [I][U]two[/U][/I] layettes, because she’s expecting twins!–and I started thinking that a little something for the mom herself might be nice, but I don’t know her very well at all. I’ve only met her twice, so I didn’t have an opportunity to see what her taste really is. She’s in her mid-twenties somewhere, and she seems pretty chic (unlike myself, not knowing what’s “in” and what’s “out” :teehee:); she works in the cosmetology industry, if any of these bits of info help. I think I’d like to make her a shawl as a comfort to her after childbirth, and maybe as a sort of “hug” to her when she’s been up with the babies, tired, etc., so I was trying to find something that would suit her, and I was wondering how this shawl might be? I thought it had enough style to be for a younger person. Plus it uses worsted weight yarn, of which I already have some! :woohoo::cheering:
But now about color. The only times I saw her were once briefly and once at her wedding, so I don’t know about colors really. I thought about keeping it simple maybe and doing it in a cream color, but would some other color be better? I think she likes sparkles, so I was thinking about maybe knitting some beads into the shawl here and there, but depending on the care the beads would require, maybe not–I’d like to keep this completely machine washable and dryable for ease of care.
