Mother’s Day

I made this shawl for my mom for Mother’s day. The pattern is Golden Orchids by Aino Haikala.

I definitely learned to have more fun with a photo session before giving a gift away. My mom loved it!

Yarn and other details are on my Ravelry project page. I called this the Antique Shawl because the color reminded my of antique shopping with my mom when I was growing up.

I love giving handmade gifts, though it sometimes means I don’t end up keeping a lot of my knit items for myself.

What about you?

Do you make or buy gifts?

Do you prefer to receive handmade gifts, something from a store, an experience, or something else??
