Of course, as they are little girls, the concept of a shawl just does not work. They quickly got irritated with the fact that the shawl kept falling off of their shoulders as they were playing. So, I made a few single crochet stitches up each side of the shawl in order to make armholes. A shrug was born and my girls are thrilled. So am I.
Laura, thank you once again for the awesome package and yarn. I've put a couple of the other skeins to use making more teacher appreciation gifts - to be revealed soon.
