I knit this shawl for a friend who is pregnant. Her due date is in October 2008. A nursing shawl is the best gift for a mom because she needs some warmth and privacy when friends and family are visiting. And she can wrap her baby in it, too.
I chose very soft, hardwearing and easy care yarn in DK weight from my stash and played with the colors.
I added a ruffle because a mom is still a girl too, and I bound off in contrasting color.
Now the baby uses it as a blanket.
