A Quick Knit

 On Tuesday night, Dec 17, we decided that my MIL, should receive a handmade gift this year. Preferably a shawl, one on the short side. She and my FIL had moved into a home during the summer months. And their son, the UPS Store guy, thought a shawl would be good for her.  :)  At the time, I am thinking, oh, no, a week to Christmas!!! What can I do in that short period of time.  Immediately, my mind went to my Ma Cherie pattern, .

On Wednesday morning, I went to JoAnn's Fabrics and purchased some Lion Brand Twist Stripes. It is a beautiful yarn and acrylic, for easy care. I love how this little shawl looks made from this self-striping yarn.

On Saturday morning, I finished the shawl, while at work in the store.  :) Good thing it was for the boss's mom.  :)  He took my picture and I took the 2 others.  I wrapped it, and we shipped the shawl and his dad's gift that very day.  It probably won't make it in time for Christmas, but the gifts should arrive before New Years!!  I am just glad that I wrote that pattern and that it really is a quick gift.
