My love around Nonna's shoulders

Are handmade gifts better than store-bought ones?

I cannot speak for others....but I must admit that I LOVE receiving handmade gifts...stitch by stitch, all that love is knitted, sewn, woven, embroidered.....into something that radiates love...

Back in May, I started this teal coloured shawl (free pattern through Ravelry.com or Madelinetosh.com) for myself....when my mother-in-law came to visit, I saw how she caressed it as I knitted and thought.....perhaps it will make a good early birthday gift.

Sure enough, she agreed. How great it feels to give something handmade.....enjoy, Mamma...
