My New Favorite Knit Shawl

How to Make this Amazing Knit Shawl

Astonishingly, I just attended an end of year assembly this morning where she received an award for her character...…Gotta' say I'm a pretty proud momma at the moment. 
Not only was I blessed with amazing kids, but we have also been blessed with finding a w…
