I call this shawl the mourning shawl as both versions have been made while I was saying goodbye to a loved one, the first version was while waiting for my husbands grandmother to pass. This time we had heard that our cat was suffering from cancer and nothing could be done for her anymore. In times of sadness I need to keep my hands busy.
The pattern is called Seems Like Old times and you can find it here:http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/seems-like-old-times
This morning our little furry lady passed away surround by the people that adored her and that she loved so much. We are sad that she is gone but grateful for 14 years of love, friendship and companionship.
