We all have days when what we need most is a thing as simple as a gentle hug. Melanie's youngest daughter was having one of those days and this was the shawl she put 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?
