My mama is turning 60 this July. Clearly this means I should make her something particularly awesome, but what? I would kind of like to make her an extremely complicated shawl, but I don't know if she'd wear one. The ideal would be to make her a kickass blanket, but that would be crazy expensive, and jobs aren't so easy to find right now. So maybe a shawl. Unless I have some brilliant sweater inspiration. I can't tell you how often she wears the two sweaters I've made her. She wore the blue Aran one literally all winter. She hates wearing coats, and would much rather just put on a big sweater, so the blue one was basically her coat.
Anyway. Never too soon to start thinking about this!
