    Oh my goodness, I found the blog all by myself. I’m 68 and not very computer literate. I LOVE SHAWLS. I knit them as prayer shawls for St. Luke’s church’s prayer ministry. I would love more patterns. I think I’ve knitted and crocheted every shawl pattern of yours and many I have found on Ravery and Love Crafts. Thank you for all you do for us “yarn nuts” and thank you for considering my entry. thank you, gail

    I love shawls! So much so that I pre-ordered Marie’s new book within minutes of receiving her OLIVE KNITS email. Already have the sweater book as well, the sweaters don’t fit into the time line for me. So…….I give them a week per size, tada. Love the show and love the guests.
