When I completed the Frozen Leaves shawl, I mentioned to a friend that I was planning to give it away – perhaps to a bride. She told me another friend was looking for a shawl or stole to wear as mother of the bride and it would be lovely for her. I opined that white was not an option for anyone but the bride… but that I would love to knit something custom made for Mum.

Thus was born the Teardrop Stole aka I Always Cry at Weddings.
