We all have these days, when what we need most is a thing as simple as a gentle hug.

My youngest daughter seemed to have had one of these on the day I got this shawl off my blocking mats  she instantly grabbed it, put it around her shoulders and refused to take it off for the rest of the day. She kept saying how soft the fabric was, and how much she liked to cuddle up into it…

Aren’t moments like these the reason why we’re knitting?
